It seems that my last mail didn't make it to this list so I try to send it 

I'm having trouble recording videos from my v4l-device (Hauppauge WinTV) using 
MPlayer 0.90 rc5.

After some seconds of recording I get the message "too bad - dropping audio 
frames" repeatet until I stop recording via CTRL+C. If I play this video and 
it gets to this position it's repeated until the video is stopped.

I have tested it with following command-lines (and a lot of more I don't 

mencoder -tv on:driver=v4l:width=384:height=288 -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1200 -oac copy -o /public/tv.avi

mencoder -tv on:driver=v4l:width=384:height=288 -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg4:vbitrate=1200 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:br=128 -o 

mencoder -tv on:driver=v4l:width=384:height=288 -ovc lavc -lavcopts 
vcodec=mpeg4:vhq:vbitrate=2100 -oac pcm -o /public/tv.avi

I tested it with "mpeg1video" as well.

I already found someone with the same problem in the mailinglist-archive but 
this posting was in hungarian that I don't understand. :-)

Can anybody help me?
