gcc versions older than 4 ignored alignment attributes of stack
variables. If you use gcc 4+ then this shouldn't be an issue for
MPlayer. FFmpeg has another issue in that its library code might get
called by code from another compiler that doesn't keep the stack itself
aligned (in practice most likely to happen on Windows), but this
shouldn't concern MPlayer unless you somehow mix compilers during the

In short: if you compile with gcc 4+ then there should be no problems.
gcc versions older than 4 may have problems (but probably not more than
they did with the previous MPlayer version, probably mainly slowdown).

DTS downmixing to stereo is broken after the FFmpeg DTS decoder changes.
-channels 2 has no effect. I think fixing this properly requires changes
in FFmpeg (the current decoder in FFmpeg has some downmixing logic but
