I found on mplayer page:
4.4. Playback problems
Q: How can I select audio/subtitle tracks from a DVD, OGM, Matroska or NUT file?

A: You have to use -aid (audio ID) or -alang (audio language), -sid(subtitle ID) or -slang (subtitle language), for example:

mplayer example.mkv -alang eng -slang eng
mplayer example.mkv -aid 1 -sid 1

To see which ones are available:
mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -v filename | grep sid
mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -v filename | grep aid
But i dont have keyboard to manual setup the line that play video riped....
I have ssh access, and on #mythtv-users channel sey that can be changed in database. I gues its mysql that come with MCE 1.1
but i need username and pass, i try with root as user, pass: xbox, media etc.. didnt login to mysql server or database.
Can someone explain me how to do this change...
THnx in advance

Gentoox MCE 1.1 come with mysql already installed, the default mysql user and pass are mythtv/mythtv but i cant connect to mysql with this information.
i use this command:
mysql localhost -u mythtv -p
then i get prompt to enter pass i try mythtv nothing... I tried this pass: media, xbox, gentoox.
I dont wonna change that pass that mythtv use as i dont know where to write it IF I EVER CONNECT to database to change command line flags to get subtitle working while playing riped dvd from vob...

Thnx for try,

The localhost from this "mysql localhost -u mythtv -p" command was problem.
the "mysql -u mythtv -p" will prompt for pass and "mythtv" will pass it:
media@MediaCenter $ mysql -u mythtv -p
Enter password:
Welcome to the MySQL monitor. Commands end with ; or \g.
Your MySQL connection id is 26 to server version: 4.0.20

Type 'help;' or '\h' for help. Type '\c' to clear the buffer.

But i am blind there, i am not good in mysql, so if someone have time and know how to edit this line trought mysql pls help me.
Thnx a lot
