Hmm, it's interesting. there is no A-V correction... so it means that audio
and video are in sync. but it differs from realtime, so your audio card runs
on different rate than it was initialized to.
what to do?
1. try with -noalsa option (it disables timer)
2. measure time with stopwatch using mplayer -nosound
i'm very interested in the results.

of course. it means that mplayer plays it at correct rate.

timing is based on your audio card. so it plays at wrong rate, it will
mess up the whole timing. if you use -nosound, then system timer will be

I think it plays well for me. But upload it to thot.banki.hu, i'll check.
