Thanks for the info,
but I think if this is really a bug then it should be fixed
(eg. see if the WIN DLL is present and the file is of a certain type 
(troublesome files) then switch to the DLL instead of the native.
Anyway the playback in my case was completely ok, it is just that at the
end of the stream mplayer freezes and does not exit so I think the
fix must not be that hard.
Anyway Corey reported that he is using CVS and he does not experience
problems with the example stream I posted. I will try out CVS and see
if that cures the problem.
Just for curiousity: Corey have you installed the latest win32 codecs ?
(I have the latest win32 + QT codecs, installed a few days ago)
