How are they related to MPlayer?

I am having this issue with MPlayer (from command line) on:
 - an embbedded Linux device (the sample MP3 stops at 7.8/8.0 with libmad),
 - Ubuntu 2012.04 with the latest MPlayer (built from the official website, not
   Ubuntu's package) (the sample MP3 stops at 7.9/8.0 with libmad),
 - Windows 7 with the latest MPlayer from SMPlayer (the sample MP3 stops at
   7.1/8.0 with libmad, 7.3/8.0 with ffmp3).

Using libmad as the decoder seems to worsen things compared to other MP3

Best regards,
