[MEncoder-users] Bug in mplayer/mencoder 1.0pre7 and CVS regarding -audiofile / seperate audio file leads to crash or async video, take 10 seconds and try yourself

Hello list!

Try this:

mplayer video.avi -audiofile audio.mp3

When you feel lucky hit the 'q'-key to quit mplayer and it will crash

Another issue is muxing the two streams together:

mencoder video.avi -audiofile audio.mp3 -ovc copy -oac copy -o new.avi

It will skip lots of frames and the result will be out of sync badly. It
seems to crash, too, but not hard as above.

I could post a lot more info like the devs want on their website, but I
guess it's happening to any x86 user anyway (I'm on a gentoo box and I
also chattet to a Slackware user in #mplayer on freenode who suffered
the same crash) so there's no point to tell you guys about the specifics
of my system ;-)

Sure thing it happens relatively seldom a user wants to use a seperate
audiotrack with mplayer, but I think more people want to mux two
streams, so it'll be great to have that fixed :=)
