Arpi saw fit to inform me that:

Thanks. It works. There are some little bit confusing options in
mplayer.conf regarding this. Consider this .

noalsa = 1 ????

Today I watched a VCD. The first CD had problems in between and mplayer was
trying to run the bad part too and jumpy, blocky pictures with breaking
sound and after some frames everything was normal ( ie.: after the problem
part was over). mplayer did not terminate. It completed the VCD.

The problem now is. Say if there is sufficient part of a VCD say 2-3
minutes contains errors than u have to painfully watch all those blocks and
breaking sound which is annoying. 

In case I get a VCD which contains errors and if mplayer terminates than I
will send u the output of mplayer -v -v -v -v as asked by u.

Thanks for your time.

Bye the way. This is the best Video player I have come across on all
platforms. The quality is simply too good. Thanks.

Warm Regards
