One 'video frame' flv does not play correctly

Reported by: shlomif@… Owned by: reimar
Priority: normal Component: demuxer
Version: HEAD Severity: normal

Reproduced by developer: Analyzed by developer:


In the directory in the URL:

are an .flv and a correspnding .avi file that cannot be played in mplayer-svn-trunk. The .flv was downloaded from:

using youtube-dl.

VLC can play them both, and Xine can play the .flv .

Here are some more details:

  1. I'm using Mandriva Linux Cooker (about to become Mandriva 2009.1)
  1. I'm using the radeonhd driver with an ATI HD 2600 Pro.
  1. VLC plays the music from the .avi fine (without displaying the video, that's

actually just a still picture).

  1. I've compiled mplayer from svn trunk.

  • Summary changed from Cannot play the IFTlhxwwkKE .flv from YouTube or its correspnding .avi to One 'video frame' flv does not play correctly

sample moved to samples/FLV/
thanks for reuploading

this is just one of those one-frame video and mostly mp3 files.
mplayer has trouble when the audio and video streams do not match duration wise.
