[MPlayer-users] When I play some avi files with a locally compiled mplayer, it uses mpg123 to decode the audio, and it decodes it incorrectly.

So, the audio is misinterpreted, and when I try to move around in the
file, it then locks the movie after a few seconds.

My locally compiled version.
Fails with mpg123:
[lavf] stream 1: audio (mp3float), -aid 0
Load subtitles in ./
Opening audio decoder: [mpg123] MPEG 1.0/2.0/2.5 layers I, II, III
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 2 ch, s16le, 32.0 kbit/2.08% (ratio: 4000->192000)

System version without mpg123 support.
Works with ffmpeg:
[lavf] stream 1: audio (mp3float), -aid 0
Load subtitles in ./
Requested audio codec family [mpg123] (afm=mpg123) not available.
Enable it at compilation.
Opening audio decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg/libavcodec audio decoders
libavcodec version 59.18.100 (external)
AUDIO: 48000 Hz, 1 ch, floatle, 62.6 kbit/4.08% (ratio: 7824->192000)
Selected audio codec: [ffmp3float] afm: ffmpeg (FFmpeg MPEG layer-3

I filed a bug at fedora's bugzilla, and it was closed as an mplayer
issue.  I don't think it is, but I am asking here in case it is.  I
have two workarounds, compiling without mpg123 support and using the
system mplayer, so not major.  However, this used to work without any

My question:  Is it an mplayer issue?
