I am informed that xine-lib and totem are enable to load subtitles of a Xvid movie, but I just can't turn it on, anybody has successed? I usually have two kinds of subtitle, one is srt format, the other is idx and sub format.
I got some hint on hadess | totem website,
External subtitle support (only on the command-line, use like: totem file:///file.avi#subtitle:file.sub)
I will try it when coming back home.
PS, very nice to see in his website, there is "official" archlinux totem package listed but linked to describing page of Arch site, haha.
Seems no luck.
