Subtitles position in the window (Totem/VLC) when watching a movie.

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Is there any way to position subtitles in Totem in a bottom on the black border of the 16:9 movie when showing in the full screen of 4:3 monitor? Or not necessarely in fullscreen, but in a window where black borders are on the top and underneath the actual video frames. Now always the subtitles covers part of the video on the bottom, which is a shame as there would be empty space underneath also. The same question for VLC. Subtitles, would be in the external file. And I am not looking a solution which would need transencoding the video file. (HowTos)
