I've finally uploaded the first 2000000 bytes of the file to the ftp server.
But the error with the -idx doesn't show up if I use it on the shortened
file. It happens only on the whole file. There is some problem with the big
index overwriting some parts of memory necessary to load the dlls or
something simmilar.

Here are the messages from the mplayer console:
Detected AVI file format!

Maybe you forget to upgrade your win32 codecs?? It's time to download the
package from:  ftp://thot.banki.hu/esp-team/linux/MPlayer/w32codec.zip  !
Or you should disable DShow support: make distclean;make -f Makefile.No-DS

And I have another problem. When I play some wide-angle movie on my computer
with NVidia Riva TNT in fullscreen mode using the xv driver on the bottom of
the movie is displayed a flashing violet line. It's very annoying and
disturbing. When I switch to some lower resolution using ctrl-alt-+ the
movie is too big to fit on screen but when I move the visible part of the
screen the violet line sometimes disappears.

I have current binary drivers by NVidia.

Thanks for any help,
