[MEncoder-users] Subtitle-woes

I've ripped a vob from a DVD using

`mplayer dvd://1 -dumpstream -dumpfile X.vob'

This vob contains subtitles (yes I'm sure, I can watch them using `-sid
nr') I really need, so I'd like to dump them. If I understand the docs
right, the option of choice for this task is `-dumpsub'. Unfortunately,
the result is not very satisfying:

,----[ $ mplayer X.vob -dumpsub ]

| Playing X.vob.
| MPEG-PS file format detected.
| demux: File doesn't contain the selected audio or video stream.
| Core dumped ;)
| Exiting... (End of file)

Also, while `-sid nr' works fine, `-vobsubid nr' doesn't work at all.

Any hints what I'm doing wrong?
