[MPlayer-users] Too many (4096 in 8287298 bytes) video packets in the buffer

       About two minutes into a DVD (which was playing nicely) I get the

DEMUXER: Too many (4096 in 8287298 bytes) video packets in the buffer!
(maybe you play a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed)

       and then the audio stops.  The video continues so I can watch but
       not listen (and I thought silent movies were a thing of the past ;)).

       I have used both the 0.50 released version and the CVS version and
       both give the same error.

       'vlc' (www.videolan.org) plays the title withot trouble.
