Getting the following error message when I try to play anything on Mplayer. It plays just getting this message.
"Failed to Open /home/helidude20/.mplayer/default.sub". What do I need to do and what is the default.sub file ?

Thanks,

Thanks,

just create an empty file named 'default.sub' in your '.mplayer' directory. ...I used vi to create it. ..you can also use any text editor like gedit.

code:

vi /home/helidude20/.mplayer/default.sub
