Is there a easy way to change the font, the color of the subtitles?
I use Mpeg4 AVC (x264) filter subtitle, only some size modification are allowed.

My workaround is to edit the .ssa file created by Avidemux and change the header
I prefer Georgia font and  yellow subtitle which are better for my eyes.

If you feed a .srt file to the ssa filter in Avidemux and let it generate a .ssa from that file, there is no way to specify a custom style. Please use a dedicated editor like Aegisub right away, then feed the output to the filter.
