very preferably including the subtitles.

The English title is When Father was Away on Business.

I actually have a DVD of this,

but I suspect the youtube version of being clearer.

It's more than two hours long, which is why I was practicing on

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-M3zhoq5tT0&feature=related ,

which is less than 15 minutes.

They have different "share" mechanisms.

The big one just gets a link back to youtube.

They're all Youtube Videos for what I'm quickly reading... That's Good!!
Well, you can use "Minitube" or "ClipGrab", Not sure if one of them has

support for subtitles... As far as I remember Minitube Doesn't and clipgrabdoes not install in it's final release under F15...
What I would do in your place is Downloading and installing

minitube with "sudo yum -y install minitube" and then I'll use itto download the videos without subtitles, after that, you can downloadthe subtitles track separetly from internet and then in a player such as Smplayer or maybe VLC

you can put the subtitles into the video while watching.
Hope that helps!
