Never knew Mplayer could play a smaller fileformat than MythTV. I would 
have though that for the same codec the filesizes would be about the same.

But I have no idea about subtitles in Mplayer, AFAIK I have never used or 
installed mplayer. But if you can parse the MythTV files and turn audio and 
video into another format, the subtitles could be converted in a similar 
way into any format you know.
