Looking at the bitmap subtitles, they appear to be rendered inverted and 
somewhat transparent, I think if the original bitmap was inverted and 
then displayed on a black background (i.e. a black subtitle background 
color) they would display almost perfectly.

Inverting the image above in gimp pretty much shows a 100% improvement 
in quality.

Is it possible these subtitles should be rendered inverted by mplayer 
but are not ?
