Thanks for looking at it!

Doh.. that makes things more complicated.. I was hoping there would be something

I can only say the time that the player is printing on the TV, as I mentioned
in one of the previous posts I tried playing the stream twice. The first
time it crashed after about 34 seconds (0:0:34), the second time it crashed
after about 57 seconds (0:0:57).

The last theory that I have is, that maybe it is simply "too much" for the 
player in terms of the overall datarate? After all this file has 3 audio 
streams, 1 video stream and a number of subtittle streams. I'll try to
strip away the rest, leaving only one audio stream and one video stream and
I will see if the problem persists.

Btw, this leads me to another question, libdvdnav has a function called 
dvdnav_audio_language_select(), what exactly is it good for? This does not
alter the incoming data anyway, right?

Kind regards,
