    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)
     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
