vobsub is an image based format.  This is obviously text based.

Mplayer automatically guesses the format of text subtitle files.  Just 
use "-sub filename".  Then you should get the rest of the information 
somewhere in the mplayer output.

If it doesn't work then, it's either a format mplayer doesn't support 
(not likely), or there's something wrong with your font.
