How is that file encoded? Are you sure no other players render it properly?
The reason I ask is that I get exactly the same behaviour trying to play a
DV type 1 (interleaved) file with mplayer (no audio either; mplayer exits
after printing the above message). However, when I convert the file to DV
type 2 (traditional audio and video streams), mplayer plays it properly.
Mplayer doesn't support DV type 1 if I understand correctly.
