[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.

-ac ffmp3float or -ac -mpg123 are probably workarounds as well.

This uses libmpg123 from the RedHat repo?
Causes I suspect, most likely first:
- A behaviour change in libmpg123. Matter of definition if that is a MPlayer or libmpg123 issue then
- A libmpg123 issue. Not a MPlayer issue then
- Something weirder like libmpg123 not compiled right or such

If it's the first point though that would have started to happen with an update to a newer libmpg123 and you could bisect when the issue started.
Not sure it's really worth the effort though...
