#1723 closed defect (invalid)

When audio is missing mplayer shouldn't wait for too long

I have this situation: mms stream declares that there is one video and one audio. But looks like audio is missing. Mplayer waits for a few minutes for the audio packets, then it says: Too many video packets in the buffer: (4096 in 5070356 bytes). And plays video only. But looks like buffering is broken and it stops with this message:

read error:: Operation now in progress0 25%
pre-header read failed
V:2016543.2 4218/4218 1% 0% 0.0% 0 0 0%
Invalid frame duration value (2016543.248/-9223372036854775808.000 => -0.002). Defaulting to 0.040 sec.
V:2016543.2 4219/4219 1% 0% 0.0% 0 0 0%

Same stream in windows player just plays video without audio.

MPlayer shouldn't wait for so long. It should reduce wait for 1-2 secs and start playing and tell user what happened.

Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?
For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.
