Hi Mason,
Thank you. It is working, but there is no forwarding and backwarding for volume and the movie itself. Also I can not find the subtitle.
Could you pls tell me how to get them ?
... thanx

Foward & Backward for the movie is the left and right arrow keys, volume is 9 and 0.

For subtitles: try mplayer -sid 0 filename or mplayer -sid 1 filename etc. If that doesn't work double check the subtitles are actually contained in the file. If the subtitles are stored in a separate file then use mplayer -sub /path/to/subfile filename.
