If it's Hebrew [most probably all RTL languages. Comments?], add -flip-hebrew and -noflip-hebrew-commas to the mplayer switches:

transcode -i myvideo.avi -x mplayer="-utf8 -flip-hebrew -noflip-hebrew-commas -sub myvideo.srt" -o myvideo_subtitled.avi -y xvid
cat subtitles.txt | perl -pe 's/} /}/g; s/{(\d+)}/=1=/; $f1=(24/25*$1); s/{(\d+)}/=2=/; $f2=(24/25*$1); $f1=~s/\..*//; $f2=~s/\..*//; s/=1=/{$f1}/; s/=2=/{$f2}/; ' > subtitles_newfps.txt

Reencodes to MPEG-4 DivX output video file from step 1. Audio stream is simply copied. Resizes to 320x240 and deinterlaces as needed. A heading subtitle file is applied as watermark. This heading subtitle file can be a URL.

mencoder -sub heading.ssa -subpos 0 -subfont-text-scale 4 -utf8 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr=128 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mjpeg -vf scale=320:-2,expand=:240:::1 -o output.avi input.flv

Create subtitle file heading.ssa with just one entry for the entire video duration. Command line sets that entry's text on top of the video as text watermark. If text is an URL works nice for sending people back to your site from a YouTube clip. Output file is lossless encoded and suitable for further processing. Subtitle file can be a URL so it's saved remotely.

mencoder -sub subs.ssa -utf8 -subfont-text-scale 4 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr=128 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4 -ffourcc xvid -o output.avi input.flv

Gives MPEG-4/DivX output video file ready for uploading to YouTube from FLV file downloaded from the site and your own subtitle file UTF-8 encoded. No resizing needed. (?)
