I had tried many times to make (Akhbar[Free font] used in TV subtitle) subtitle font worked on smplayer 0.6.6 and earlier but I couldn't. There are two Arabic encoding in Smplayer: cp-1256 and ISO-8859-6.
Linux (like Kacst package)and Microsoft fonts (msttcorefonts package) work fine on cp-1256 encoding. The Akhbar font and alot of Arabic fonts[http://freearabicfonts.com/Free_Arabic_Fonts] did not work on open office,gimp and all video players on both encoding.
It is also the same thing in Smplayer windows version.
this is a list of arabic fonts
