I got the mplayer from this link 
which of course no longer exist so I am not sure what happen to the 
developer who complied this binary for Windows.

I am hoping whoever did this mplayer will see this and update the latest 
mplayer since it been working great for years.

Here an old post where I got the mplayer that support scrolling closed 
caption from. 

I know it show it complied for RelayTV but it works on any mpeg with 
closed caption at least my old mplayer does. If anyone want me to upload 
my old binary mplayer that have scrolling closed caption support to let 
me know and I more than glad to upload it for you.
