Sure. It's working fine here with xine-ui and totem (with totem-xine backend). 
You may need to edit ~/.xine/config and ~/.gnome2/totem_config manually 
(search for "subtitle"). (I don't remember exactly how I did it. It was a 
long time ago back when I was still using Gentoo and I simply used the same 
configs in my home directory when switching to Ubuntu.)
