[MPlayer-users] Fails to recover from broken stream (handled in other scenarios)

Hello. Hopefully this could be solved without uploading an example file. 
The file is 218MB, and called "Rush - The Story Of Rush (July 1, 2002 - 
1 Hour bio) [DivX 4].avi". Bandwidth restrictions make it hard for me to 
upload outside my network DMZ.

Anyhow, there's a encoding error that mplayer can't recover from. 
Mplayer is capable of continuing without sound, though, after doing 
"switching to -ni mode" and a quite long pause. The player XINE exhibits 
similar behaviour, but wasn't able to continue playing at all. Oddly, 
they both use the same encoder.

The error is at 28 min~, and when seeking up to it (starting to play 
before) or starting at a point after it, the same thing happens.

Avifile/aviplay was able to handle it though.

System: Debian unstable on a K7, MPlayer 0.90rc5-3.2.3 from 
marillat.free.fr Debian repository.

I've attached the outputs of mplayer and aviplay. I hope this helps.

Please do tell me if it's necessary for me to upload the file to somewhere.


Best regards,
Petter Sundlöf
