How do you call "mplayer -v"? This command alone won't tell you
anything, you have to use it with the command options to play your DVD,

  mplayer -v -dvd 1 

And then it will tell you something like this:

DVD successfully opened!
[open] audio stream: 0 audio format: ac3 language: ja aid: 128
[open] audio stream: 1 audio format: ac3 language: en aid: 129
[open] audio stream: 2 audio format: ac3 language: unknown aid: 130
[open] audio stream: 3 audio format: ac3 language: unknown aid: 131
[open] number of audio channels on disk: 4.
[open] subtitle ( sid ): 0 language: en
[open] subtitle ( sid ): 1 language: unknown
[open] number of subtitles on disk: 2

So, to use the english subtitles, I use -sid 0
