Couple of questions regarding Mplayer
I have a couple of questions about mplayer, especially the DVD reading.
1) Everytime I load a DVD, I get this message
Failed to open /home/.../.mplayer/default.sub
2) I was never able to load the menu of a DVD. It either loads directly into the movie, or it plays those 10 secs of the distribuitor, after which the mplayer just closes... the only way I can see the movies is opening the first title... this causes that I have to change the subtitles and audio set-ups everytime, which starts the movie again (annoying).

Well, about the first problem:
Go to Preferences > Subtitles & OSD and check the "Disable subtitle autoloading" option in mplayer
About the second, well, don't know much about it, but, run the mplayer from console, when it closes you will get the error in the console that is having the mplayer

Don't forget to add something like:

Ok, thanks for the help... thing is, that's not really what I wanted to know. As I've used in other multimedia players, the DVD menu appears right after the distributor's logo.
I wanted the access to the menu just to be able to configure the movie once, and access parts only accessed through the menu...
There is no error message at the end of the distributors, it just stops and says Exiting (end of file)...
It seems to me that mplayer just reads the first title to the end, exiting when it ends. Is it not possible for mplayer to do the connection between the titles, i mean, to access directly the DVD menu after the end of the first title, as the dvd is programed?
also, how do I use that lsdvd app?
