Once in a while, SMPlayer wastes my time by “scanning” through all the TTF files in the Windows\Fonts directory, and refuses to do its job (playing a video) while it does this.
This is completely unnecessary and pointless. I just wanna watch the damn video file.
I cannot think of a single reason why this scanning is ever necessary. Even if I were playing a video with subtitles (which I’m not), the only TTF file it would need to read from would be the one single font that it is displaying the subtitles in.
Remove the code that scans the files, and let me get on with playing the video.
If there is an unobvious reason for doing this, do it silently in the background and with low priority. Do not allow it to delay the watching of a video.
