Hi Guys,

I'm trying to play a stream and write it to a fifo (I always did this 
with mplayer). The stream I have to play does
not work in older mplayers so I've downloaded MPlayer-20050122.

Now I do the following:

mplayer mms:// -ao pcm:file=/fifo/test


Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
AUDIO: 32000 Hz, 2 ch, 16 bit (0x9), ratio: 4000->128000 (32.0 kbit)
Selected audio codec: [ffwmav2] afm:ffmpeg (DivX audio v2 (ffmpeg))

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: ao2_init
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
 Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
 disassembly. Details in 
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
 It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
 gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
 DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We 
can't and
 won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a 
possible bug.

What can be wrong?
