[ubuntu] VLC not showing embedded subtitles in a .MOV video

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have downloaded a big .MOV file with subtitles embedded on it. But when I play it the subtitles aren't displayed. I then found out that Videos/Subtitle Track/caption - [English] was not enabled, so I enabled it. I was able to see the subtitles for a very brief while (say, half a second or less), but then they disappeared. All other players I have installed on my computer show the subtitles perfectly, but VLC is my favourite player. I wonder why it is not working and whatever plugin/codec is missing. Thanks for any help. PS: I have VLC 2.0.1 running on Ubuntu 12.04 64-bit. (Hardware)
