Eh? I've got tons of files which display this message in recent version
of mplayer. Not tens, but hundreds; in fact, I think that most older avi
files display this message. Of course they play back without any
noticeable issues, and never had any before that message started
appearing. At some point I became very annoyed and hacked source to
disable this message.

+1 for making it DEBUG message..
