I solved the problem for reading an avi file encoded from DVD file on stanalone
reader : -noodml is what is needed.

Now I have an avi file encoded with odml (latest CVS) and it stops at the 77th
minute. Now if I reencode this file (one or two passes I suppose one pass will
be enough) with -noodml added, do you think the problem will be solved or the
odml function was added definitely and can't be removed?
