I might not be able to. these are instructional
poker videos and both the drm-crippled and
drm-free videos were paid for and even if I strip
out audio and sent only the first 10-15m their
producers probably wouldn't appreciate it.
so I will have to hunt around on the web for a
video of mostly static/powerpoint-type stuff to
see if it too exhibits this problem.

tbh I'm not really sure what to look for. with
gmplayer I see:
a:xx v:xx a-v:xx ct:-0.AB CDE/FGH % % % x x %
("xx" just means digits, not they're all the same)
what I see when vid is running is the A-H response
seems to be in sync with osd timer halt/leaps.
when osd timer is stalled:
* - 0.AB stops changing its value
* CDE/FGH stops advancing
when osd timer leaps fwd or momentarily runs
* -0.AB continuously changes value
* CDE/FGH starts advancing

gmplayer is a (program supplied) link to mplayer
bin but I checked anway and understandably
both show the same rev (started as /usr/bin/<bin>).

is -ofps a critical item to always use with
mencoder? I'm sort of a rookie and only fumble
through what I find in docs/man pg wrt mencoder
so typically just do this (when trying to reduce
filesizes or using -harddup; audio seems to
already be optimally sized wrt orig):
mencoder -oac copy -ovc xvid -xvidencopts bitrate=350 -harddup
