    subtitle with mPlayer


    good morning on Linux planet

    after some efforts -going along with linux story- I managed to install mPlayer but I realised that mplayer is unalble to load subtitle on commercial DVD.

    is the answer that I should not look for commercial DVD?
    Don't think so but I'm still watching japonese DVD without subtitle which is far from being convenient.
    One more thing : I'm not sure that mPlaye can deal with the kind of interface that are displayed on DVD readers (menu and stuff).

    any idea?

    I'm using RED HAT 9 and I - should - have already loaded the fonts.

    ok, i don't really get this...are you sure that you turned subtitles on and have all the apropriate libraries installed? Reguardless, you should upgrade to one of teh Fedora Cores (1 or 2 its up to you) then just run yum and get all of xine or ogle (ogle is dedicated to playing dvd's, might fix your problem)
    Code:
     yum install ogle
    will do it all.

    thanks for trying understanding me.

    once I right click on the screen load subtitle is writen but I can not select this action.
    it is shaded.

    I will have a look in my libraries right now. but I can't get exactly what you mean by fedora core. What does it have to do with mplayer.
    subsidary question : is "yum" something similar to "apt-get" on redhat
