[MPlayer-users] problem with SVQ1 codec

Hi Apostolos,

why do you force the use of SVQ1, as Mplayer detects an SVQ3 video
stream (see below)? It is certainly the reason of your issue. AFAIK,
SVQ3 stream can't be decoded with SVQ1 codec (seems logic as SVQ1 was
created before).

Hope it helped. If it did, please try to seek forward in your trailer,
and report how far you could go. Are you limited to the beginning of
the stream, and can't go any further? Can you seek to the end of
stream? Thanks.

Best Regards,
