I got the mistake, my mistake... the device I am going to play the movie is
actually a OTT device. It's not a DVD as I said before. So, it uses the
DVBSUB as codec. anyways... the CODEC MUST BE DVBSUB...

The same file that you cited ".sub" (and idx, although I don't use)...
where could I find a documentation? is it the same as the VOBSUB?

Thank you so much for the attention.
