With the December 31st CVS (the previous output was based on CVS from
the 27th), appending -ss 42 to the above command results in a
considerably crazier version of the crash; it plays on with scrambled
video and completely screwy audio for a few seconds, then crashes as
before, but with A:10901.2 V:11528.1.
MEncoder produces a segfault on the same file, at presumably the same
point, which it reports to be approximately 85% of the way through.
Possibly none of this information is useful, but I'd like to keep up on
this if I can manage it... if no one else is interested in getting these
fixed, I am, but I don't understand enough of any of MPlayer,
audio/video encoding, and C to be able to give it a clear shot myself.
(If I *did*, I'd probably also be working on OpenDML support by now...)
