I understand this... but I need to do it because my player does not
support subtitles...

I'm using the same bitrate of the original avi (obtained by a script).
The picture looks very very well, with the ONLY exception of the FIRST
subtitle that appears on the screen. Sometimes I adds a dot (".") in
the very start of the picture to trigger the problem at the beginning.
Then some seconds later starts the real subtitles and this looks OK.

> Exact command line and mencoder output (with -v) will be helpful.

Now I'm not at home, where is the script that I use. In a few hours I
will send tha exact mencoder command lines that I am using.
