MPlayer handles 0x50 just fine.

The mplayer log says quite clearly that it's trying to use mp3lib to
play the audio stream, but that fails.  Then it tries ffmpeg, then mad,
which fails, then it gives up.  The stream is marked as 0x50, but the
MP2 decoders can't play it.

I don't know anything about vdr streams, but it seems like the file you
are playing may be corrupt.  Can any other programs play-back this file
without problems?

Also, pre5 is over half a year old now, you should at least be trying
1.0pre6, if not a CVS snapshot.
