They should be sent here. But please first read DOCS/BUGS, maybe the bug is
already known (for example, seeking/pause sync probs and sub sync probs
are known, but i have no time to fix it now, maybe next week).
If your bug isn't known, or the workaround there (if any) doesn't work,
then post a bugreport as described in DOCS/BUGREPORTS
Please include all required infos. Mayeb you already sent them to teh list
or private, but we want to see complete bugreports with all infos collected
into a single mail.

Yes, it's really usefull, but we doesn't use it for unknown reason. :)

if you can fix it, do it and send the patch. this is teh preferred way.
if you can't, then send full bugreport, for example in this case with
/proc/cpuinfo ls -lR /usr/include/X11 etc included.
we must reproduce your bug to be able to fix it!

if you don't get answer for a long time (>4 days) then repeat it!!! maybe
we forget. personally i got about 150+ mails per day related to mplayer,
it's VERY hard to keep all of them in my mind.

bug tracking system can be usefull here, but nobody send bugs there.
and it should be somehow connected to maillist, because we want to consult
and reply these mails on the list. and it's hard to include logs etc in the
bugtracking system's message.
