[MPlayer-users] Errors when playing WVM9 stream, means what?

I am playing WVM9 stream from the network (over TCP because MPlayer
doesn't support MMS over UDP, or umms://).

Often when this kind of errors come to the stdout,
"ProcessInputError  r:0x80004005=-2147467259 (keyframe: 1)"
and there is many, the picture seems disturbed and wrong.

Any obvious reason why they come. MPLayer uses
(/usr/lib/codecs/wmv9dmod.dll), which is from the essential-20050412

Possible reasons:
a) TCP stream itself is broken, but then OS should notice it and break
the connection. With ethereal I do see a few retrasmitted and duplicat
packets when the net is congested.

b) The stream is broken from the source.

c) The wmv9dmod.dll should be newer version. Did XP SP2 update it?

d) MPlayer is broken.

e) Some other, what?

(Haven't yet looked source code to see from where that error comes)
