Are you saying this happens with all mpeg videos, or with only one
specific file?

If it's one file, then upload the video (as much as is necessary to
reproduce the problem) to ftp://ftp.mplayerhq.hu/MPlayer/incoming

If it happens regardless of source, or not in any specific place, I
would suspect you have a hardware problem. For some reason mplayer and
mencoder seem to be the first programs to crash when hardware isn't
working properly. Perhaps you've overclocked a tiny bit too much, or
need to make your CPU a little cooler.
