Hmmm, I am using mplayer with dynamically linked ffmpeg. So on one hand
that would mean mplayer would automatically use the latest installed
ffmpeg anyway, which I assume it uses to decode h264. OTOH the whole
problem might be caused by the dynamic linking itself ;-) Or something
in mplayer, in the glue to ffmpeg is hardcoded.

Corey, can you test without avi2raw, e.g. using ffmpeg with -f h264? I
assume you do have mplayer statically linked?

Anyway, this isn't a large issue for me, because in the end all ends up
as mp4 which does work. But it's definitely a bug somewhere.
