    Would any of you please tell me (step by step) how to make the subtitles play along with the video-file that is supposed to play alongside the subtitles?

    I got a video-file (filename: vmt-tears-xvid.avi) with a "subtitles-file" (filename: vmt-tears-xvid.sub).
    Each of those files are pictured below:

    I need to get both of those files to work within the MPlayer program. I've been able to get that video to play, but the subtitles-file hasn't worked in MPlayer, so far.

    I've tried dragging and dropping the subtitles-file into MPlayer, and I've double-clicked that file, but none of those methods make MPlayer actually play the subtitles with the video (pictured below) that came with it:

    Would any of you please tell me how to get them (the video & subtitles) to work together, simultaneously?

    The OS X user interface isn't done, yet, so some features (like subtitles) seem to be missing. You should be able to open a video with a subtitle using the command line, but I've only done this on Linux so far. Should work on OS X, too, I think: You need the mplayer binary in $PATH (so that the command is available everywhere), and issue this command:

    Code:
    mplayer vmt-tears-xvid.avi -sub vmt-tears-xvid.sub

    Willie Sippel, I appreciate your advice.
    I don't know exactly how to do that with command line. Would you or anyone else, who knows how to use the command line please tell me exactly what I need to do (step by step) to make that subtitles-file (filename: vmt-tears-xvid.sub) work with that video-file (filename: vmt-tears-xvid.avi) in the binary-version of mplayer.
