It would have been more polite to use "please," but I guess I wasn't 
terribly polite either. I was being a little fecetious when I said 
"threaten"; I shouldn't have jumped on you like that. Many people on 
this list, including me, are happy to help, but it seems that many 
people ask questions without reading the docs first and without 
realizing that any help here is volunteered.

Did you take a look at "-vop bmovl" in the manpage? I haven't needed it 
myself, but I'm sure it can do what you want. If you just need text, 
using subtitles, as Martin suggested, might be easier. The DOCS 
directory is in the source distribution, though some binary packages 
might not include it. It might have been installed under 
/usr/share/doc/mplayer-0.90/ or something like that. If you don't have 
it, you can just download the source distribution or use CVS.
