thanks for that tip. encoding from the vob with "-sid 0" is doing the
trick. i now have what i wanted. but i'm curious to know why

$ mplayer -dvd 1 -slang en

without "-sid 0" is working on my machine if it is not supposed to work,
as kalin pointed out.

not the only way, as it turns out. i can encode from the vob, too. the
vob was created with

$ mplayer -dvd 1 -slang en -dumpstream -dumpfile rashomon.vob

i have no idea what an ogm is. rtfm -ing now.

- t.

cogito, ergo es.
