I'm using mplayer with the -sstep option to create video thumbnails and 
I have some problems. When the player reaches the last frame strange 
things happen.

In most cases I get repeatedly the following warning
[mpeg4 @ 0x8480348]warning: first frame is no keyframe
and the last frame/thumbnail keeps replicated until I manually close the 

In some other cases I don't get output at all until the playback reaches 
the last frame, which keeps replicated until I exit the player.

To replicate the above behavior just try the following with any avi/wmv
mplayer -sstep 100 foobar.avi

Interestingly, mpg files seems to work correcly.


ps. keep me in the cc because I'm not subscribed on the list.
