but actually this doesn't correspond necessarely

This is what actually IS present in the DVD.
play it with -sid 7 or -sid 6.
Sometimes you should let the movie play some
seconds before you can see all the subtitles present.

mplayer plays what you specify on the command line (track, angle, chapter
