[MPlayer-users] How to generate soft subtitles with mencoder ?

Thanks.  I gave avidemux a try but it crashed when it tired to load the source mkv files I had; the other program is a windows program and I am using ubuntu.

To be honest mencoder seems to do a very good job with these files ('cept for the subtitle issue). I'll try making avi files and running a second pass to extra subtitles into a sep file and see if that works. 

Kind of surprise mencoder can't handle this; it seemed from my web searches that the -as flag should do what I want but i couldn't figure out the right voodoo ...

Oh. So you want all in one?
