Great then we are all safe since no bad guy will ever use Slackware :)

>> And now to my problem/question:
>> I am using the canon digital ixus 300 to record small movies. Those mjpeg movies work very well with the VFW codec family but since I want to avoid the win stuff, I've set vfm=5 in ~/.mplayer/config
>> The problem is that ffmjpeg does not work well with those movies - colors are disorted and some colored shadows show sometimes up.
>> Is there a possibility to specify the VFW codec family *only* for the mjpeg codec ?

>Why don't you upload sample movie and allow us / ffmpeg authors to fix the
>mjpeg codec?
You are right, I shouldn't be so egoistic. So it's done. The file "me_and_my_girlfriend_having_sex_at_mcdonals.avi" and .txt uploaded ;)
The bugreport follows here - just in case it's needed - note I've packed the config.log, make.log and mplayer.log to a output.tgz since I don't want to produce too much trafic for the others.

Something else before I forget - Thanks also Gabu for your answer, I've replyed to your mail but since I get the mails in the digest mode it was not easy to reach the list again - hope it works this time.
