will somebody take a look at this possibly bug? I've sent it about month ago to the forum and have got no response so far. As I reported there, it occurs (long silence periods) only when playing 8kb or 16kb mms streams. 
The original message: Subject: [MPlayer-users] No sound when playing wma9spdmo (Windows Media Audio 9 Speech DMO) streams

  Since then I've found more problematic stations, here are  examples:
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro6-8   - has problems [wma9spdmo]
URL=http://live.atlas.cz/cro6/cro6-16.asx :
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro6-16  - problems ""
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro6-32  - ok [ffwmav2]

mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro2-10 - problems ""
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro2-20 - ok [ffwmav2]

mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro1-10 - problems ""
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro1-20 - ok [ffwmav2]

mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro3-10 - problems ""
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/cro3-20 - ok

- this stream has fewer problems (fewer silence periods):
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/reginapraha-10  [wma9spdmo]

- in contrary, this stream is always ok:
mms://netshow3.atlas.cz/crosever16  [wma9spdmo]

The asx URLs for all streams can be found here:

Maybe the possible reason for this behaviour is the additional info continously sent in streams (indicated as "Unknown extra header dump").
