For what it's worth, this list is publicly archived in a few different
places, so obscurity may not be an option...

I can play abc.mpg just fine, except that I only get audio in the right
channel. I suspect the file just has a silent left channel, as
andrews_18.mpg has normal stereo. I haven't checked the others.

For both files, mplayer complains:
"size restrictions for MP at ML or MPEG1 exceeded! (1280x720)"
Several times per second, but doesn't hesitate to play the video anyway.
I tried playing them with X running at 1280x1024, and then in fullscreen
at 1600x1200. No problems with the video anywhere.

I have an AthlonXP 2200 and a GeForce4 Ti4200-8x.
