I have a Debian/Sid system with the mplayer debs from 


installed.  Most everything works.  However, the sound when playing a dvd does 
not play.  the only hint is the following error messages:

a52: CRC check failed

then later in the play stream

a52: error at resampling

Eventually the playback stops with messages about noninterlacing applicable 
only to playback of .avi files.

I have tried this with / without alss.  I have a SB Live card that works fine 
for everything else.

Anyone have a clue on this one ?

P.S.  I have an ample machine.  I have also played dvds with sound on another 
machine of lesser cpu using the same debs and it works fine (different sound 
card, different cpu).
