-vd ?

Unknown option on the command line: vd

This is exactly what happens:
           **** Your system is too SLOW to play this!  ****

...[picture now stops, audio continues. If I press seek +10 it will recover]...

A:48324.1 V:48313.3 A-V: 10.803 ct: -0.428  1138/1138  10% 26% 33.5% 109 0 0%
Too many video packets in the buffer: (281 in 8396168 bytes).
Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?
For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.

Broken frame at 0x308940        

It's not actually too slow, it only takes 40% CPU while there are no errors.
It just gets stuck on a frame, even though I pass -fps explicitly. Can't it
search for synchronization bits when errors come along?
