Mostly MPlayer since most others try to use XVideo and in the process
crash the driver/X here (don't have time to fix that).

Well, if there is some way to see what causes the issue with
ffmpeg (-f framecrc might work best), ffplay or
ffprobe (I think the latter does not support seeking yet, might
be a useful addition) that would be more comfortable than a
special test app.
