AVI: Missing video stream!? Contact the author, it may be a bug :(


I'm having problems playing an OGM file which is named as video.avi. It seems
that mplayer starts to play the file as an avi file. Mplayer starts reading
the file but can't find the video stream so it will search the entire file for
it (the larger the file, the longer the search). After searching through the
whole file, playback starts.

You should never! truncate the log messages, and they should be the -v logs!
Anyway if the file is named .avi I usually wouldn't consider it a bug if MPlayer
tries to play it as avi...

I guess you can think in many ways about it being a bug per se..

However, based on experience from p2p networks for example, people do have a
lot of ogg media files named as .avi.

Anyway, do you think there will be a solution to this, mplayer not finding the
stream correctly?

You can still use -demuxer 18 to force detection as ogg.

Check with latest CVS. I can't reproduce it now, but the largest file I could
find is about 200MB in size and it opens very quickly whether as .avi or as .ogm.
