gnarface, thank you for your encouragement now all problems have been solved. mplayer plays smoothly once again.
cool :) no problem.
what was the problem?
just needed different build options?
no as long as I remember, I used vdpau for ati, didn't know that by then, and adjusted some settings of the system, well, it's been a battle for days. cheers mate.
you could just use a better player (I heard vlc is popular)
no vlc is not an option, not before, not forever, because I got mplayer
well see y'all, thanks again.
mp4 from facebook dosen't seek well - I am guessing funky keyframes and index. mencoder -forceidx -o test.mp4 ... No audio encoder (-oac) selected. Select one (see -oac help)
mencoder... -aoc is not an MEncoder option
