Yes, the current mplayer demuxer needs some work (not much, I'll do that
later this week). It cannot read files created with the latest
VDubMod. You might try to run mkvmerge to re-create the file - maybe
that'll help ('mkvmerge -o fixed.mkv broken.mkv').

No need for a backtrace, I know exactly what's wrong. I'll post a note
when I've fixed it.
