Hi Rich I tried this on the command line, but al I got was a crash :-(

The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
init_vo failed
Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkwindow.c: line 1038 (gdk_window_set_user_data):
assertion `window != NULL' failed.

Don't know what I'm doing wrong, just want to play xvid file with
subtitle on my Hollywood+ card.
Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,

Try -vop expand=0:0:0:0:1 to render subtitles in software rather than
using the dxr3's subpic device. Of course if you're playing mpeg1/2
files with passthru this will make things a lot slower since it will
require reencoding, but if you're just playing mpeg4 files it should
be fine.
