If you play back the video with -v, subtitles that appear later in the
video are printed out as:
==> Found subtitle: 4
But no language is given (of course)
On this behalf I have to add that one cannot always rely on the subtitle
information given in the IFO (or at least mplayer does not parse them
always correctly). There are some features I play back, where the
subtitles appearing do not match the language specified. I can't recall
any specific name right now, but there were some discs where e.g.
the following list was specified: en, en, de, tr, de, de, and the second
subtitle was instead a german, also the thrird. I didn't pay close
attention to it and never tried finding out what went wrong, but in the
future I'll post some here if it arises again...
