I'd like to get the titles out and into the IDX and SUB files, but don't need the video portion itself. Would this be with something like -vo null? I'd appreciate any pointers from anyone that can help.

Do something like:
mplayer -vc null -vo null -ao null -dumpsub -vobsubout mysub 
-vobsuboutindex 1 movie.vob
This is off the top of my head, but this or something like it will get 
you mysub.vob and mysub.idx fast.
If it doesn't work, search the giant man page for these options for more
