This is not specific to the subtitles filter. The escaping rules are
documented, you just need to read them. Of course, you have to take into
account the escaping required by your shell.

The fact that the file name does not match is rather worrisome. If you
want useful help, you have to be very careful that the commands you show
here match exactly the one you tested and the errors you report.
