Hi all,
 I have a WMV video file that used to work fine with mplayer. Recently
I have upgraded to mplayer version 1.0pre7try2 with latest codecs. Now
the same file does not work well.

 Its a 5 minutes long video, but after 30 seconds mplayer quits reporting
 "Exiting... (Quit)"

 The video file is available for test at

The output of mplayer is
