thanks for the -subaa option :) the DVD subtitles look a _LOT_ better now.

It was my mistake after all.
What I do now is '-slang pt -vop scale=640:256,crop=720:384 -subaa 20
-subpos 1'.

Perfect original DVD subtitles!

Thanks again, Rich!

Not directly. But...

If you rip them as vobsubs, the .idx file stores the original size of
the movie. If you double the "original size" here, I think mplayer
will scale them down to half size when playing. However, the
positioning also might get screwed up, in which case you'll have to
use the -spualign and -subpos options to have mplayer choose its own
positions for subs.

Good luck.
