No MPlayer can't extract it to .srt, but idx/sub, ex:
$ mplayer dvd://1 -dumpsub -vobsubout vobsub
This will creata a vobsub.idx and a vobsub.sub --- Note: this is image data --
each subtitle is stored as a image.
To convert vobsub to SubRipper (.srt) I usually use subtittleripper
There are tre tools you use to convert the subtitles:
1. vobsub2pgm -- this vill extract all images from the .sub file and create
one file for each image.
2. pgm2txt -- this will convert the images to text using OCR (some words may
end up misspelled)
2. srttool -- this will put all the txt files togetter to one .srt file.
(timestemps are in step 1 extrakted form the .idx file in an other file, to be
merged to the finnaly .srt file in step 3)
thay use transcode and subtitle2pgm instead of mplayer and vobsub2pgm... the
other steps are the same.
