Bug report for
MPlayer dev-CVS-051222-22:39-4.0.1

Crash on custom codec loading


gdb.cmd: The gdb cmdline file used
mplayer.bug: The gdb session
*.ax: The dshow codecs
video_ts.xvo: sample video file
codecs.conf: entries for locating the codecs

From the uncompressed bug report .tgz dir:

# cp *.ax /usr/lib/codecs
# cp codecs.conf /etc/mplayer/
# mplayer video_ts.xvo

Backgroud info

Trying to play a ratDVD file ( with
the codecs provided at:

Audio is played nicely with the built-in AC3 decoder, see
the provided codecs.conf entry.

The file provided with the bug report: video_ts.xvo was
extracted unzipping a .ratDVD file. I can provide a full
.ratDVD (1Gb size) if needed.

Don't know if the mplayer authors want to support this
format, anyway I think mplayer shouldn't crash.

mplayer cannot load directshow filters (muxers and codecs) , only directshow
codecs seem to work.
