Here is the log:

Unknown/missing audio format -> no sound
Cannot find codec for audio format 0x56444152

I read the docs and that audio format is supposedly working:

raw DV audio decoder (libdv) 0x56444152 libdv.so.2 

I have libdv 0.98 installed (it is a dependency in gentoo for mplayer)

And i cant play the video neither, a gray screen appears with some dots
and nothing happens...

Using gentoo's rc3 ebuild

I have that file in /usr/lib

Any help is appreciated.
