Mplayer: Display only Elvish subtitles in LOTR


I have Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers extended version on DVD and want to play it with mplayer. According to mplayer the DVD only has one set of subtitles:
Code:
DVD successfully opened.
audio stream: 0 format: ac3 (5.1) language: en aid: 128.
audio stream: 1 format: dts (5.1) language: en aid: 137.
audio stream: 2 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 130.
audio stream: 3 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 131.
audio stream: 4 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 132.
audio stream: 5 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 133.
audio stream: 6 format: ac3 (stereo) language: en aid: 134.
number of audio channels on disk: 7.
subtitle ( sid ): 0 language: en
number of subtitles on disk: 1
However, choose "-slang en" puts subtitles on everything, not just the Elvish. Playing the DVD with Kaffeine displays only the subtitles when Elvish is being spoken.

Any ideas?

Okay, turns out you just need to enable "forced subtitles only"
Code:
mplayer -forcedsubsonly -sid 0 dvd://1
