I have a short mp4 I need to transcode to a lower framerate but
mplayer is producing garbage output that causes it to crash when it
tries to play the resulting file.

Here's my command line :

D:\Documents>mencoder -msglevel all=9 -ofps 10 -nosound -ovc x264 -x264encopts c
rf=18:threads=12 ********.mp4 -o ********.avi > debug.out
x264 [info]: using SAR=1/1
x264 [info]: using cpu capabilities: MMX2 SSE2Fast SSSE3 SSE4.2 AVX
x264 [info]: profile High, level 4.0

Here's the debug output  ( see pastebin link ) :


Here's what happens when I try to play the resulting avi :

D:\Documents>mplayer -msglevel all=9 ********.avi

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: unknown
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

Windows Media Player can't play the avi as well but  WMP can play the
source mp4 fine while Mplayer crashes in the same fashion when
attempting to play the source mp4.

Any help would be appreciated.
