Recently, all mp4-download videos from google video (the ipod/psp ones) just hang mplayer.

hanno@laverne ~/Desktop $ mplayer 3d3a20c3ba277579.avi.mp4

Then nothing happens any more.

(I'm obviously not 100% sure if it happens on all google videos, but all I tried, so here's a link where I've tried:

mplayer is current svn built with just --disable-mencoder --disable-gui and no other special flags.

mplayer -demuxer mov should work

I noticed the same behaviour with files from (can provide samples..). -demuxer mov works with these files.

(I'm using mplayer svn revision 27573.)

yes, small samples would be nice
can you also try them with ffplay?
if they freeze ffplay/ffmpeg then report to ffmpeg roundup tracker

mp4 freeze bug was recently fixed in svn, please update and retry.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

It was only mplayer which was hanging on the files.
But yes, the bug disappeared after trying with a recent updated mplayer.

I also downloaded the google video file in question, no problem there either. As I see it, the issue is solved.
