I downloaded LIVE's libraries the day before I posted the patch (and never updated them ever since), 
so it was 19th July.
My pc is an Athlon XP 1500+ with 512 MB DDram and kernel 2.4.20, so I have more power that your PC.
Do you get a corrupted file if you use -dumpvideo and next play the dump?

I repeated the test with a second dvd, and the result was the same: no corruption at all, just a bit slow playback.

Do you have a more powerful equipment to use at work?

I really want to make this code work!
