MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: decode_video

  • MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM. Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
  • MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen. It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.

-- End Output --

MPlayer crashes with almost any stream from that website. So it's not related to
that perticular file.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that i've compiled MPlayer(which i've downloaded
just a few minutes ago with SVN) with the following arguments passed to configure:
--enable-gui --enable-menu --enable-gl

can you try -vc wmvdmo

(In reply to comment #2)

can you try -vc wmvdmo

It works if I do that. But it's very slow untill I get the following message:

-- Begin Output --

Your system is too SLOW to play this!

Possible reasons, problems, workarounds:

  • Most common: broken/buggy _audio_ driver
    • Try -ao sdl or use the OSS emulation of ALSA.
    • Experiment with different values for -autosync, 30 is a good start.
  • Slow video output
    • Try a different -vo driver (-vo help for a list) or try -framedrop!
  • Slow CPU
    • Don't try to play a big DVD/DivX on a slow CPU! Try some of the lavdopts, e.g. -vfm ffmpeg -lavdopts lowres=1:fast:skiploopfilter=all.
  • Broken file
    • Try various combinations of -nobps -ni -forceidx -mc 0.
  • Slow media (NFS/SMB mounts, DVD, VCD etc)
    • Try -cache 8192.
  • Are you using -cache to play a non-interleaved AVI file?
    • Try -nocache.

If none of this helps you, read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.
