Unhappy gmplayer subtitles

How can I select a subtitle track from an ogg or Matroska or DVD in gmplayer????

I can select it in MPlayer this way:
mplayer file.ogg -sid 0
where I got the sid (subtitle id) from
mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -v filename | grep sid
mplayer -vo null -ao null -frames 0 -v filename | grep aid
I can even do it in gmplayer from the COMMAND LINE
gmplayer file.ogg -sid 0
but I want to do it from the GUI!!! and change it if I can while playing the movie...

I would appriciate any help
