Does this always happen at that position in the file? Can you reproduce
it? If so, please read DOCS/bugreports.html and send a proper report,
which might include uploading a portion of your file.

Also: Never cut the output of mplayer unless you really really know what
you're doing. Many sections of the output are usually needed to diagnose
a problem.

Also 2: When you create a new topic on a mailing list, please don't use
the "reply" function of your mail client, as doing so screws up the
threaded message view lots (most?) of the people here use.

Good luck,
