It seem the support of freetype is not compiled in mplayer.
When playing a movie with subtitles, subtitles don't show and this message appear :
"Cannot load bitmap font: /usr/share/mplayer/font/font.desc"

Rebuilding mplayer with the --enable-freetype flag solves the problem. The PKGBUILD should be updated.
