latest mplayer revision decodes .avi files with terrible screeching sound

Hello, I began to experience a problem playing .avi files with the latest version of
mplayer, MPlayer SVN-r33097-4.6.0.

While vlc plays .avi's just fine, mplayer decodes the audio with a high pitched screeching
noise.  Only avi's have this problem; other filetypes work as expected.  Does anyone else
have this problem?  

I uploaded a short screencapture illustrating this issue in case you want an example:

Thanks for your help.

ps. I use Fedora 14 with gcc 4.6.0

Somebody who unfortunately was not as nice as you (using the wrong mailing list):

Use -ac -mp3, (or configure --disable-mp3lib) as a temporary work-around,

I forgot to add that this will make MPlayer slightly faster on 64 bit systems
(and possibly some 32bit systems), it has a negative speed impact on MMX-only
systems (like Pentium MMX and similar).

Re: latest mplayer revision decodes .avi files with terrible screeching sound

Thank you so much Carl, you fixed my problem!  You were right in that it was an issue with
mp3 files, not .avi files like I originally thought (I guess .avi's typically have mp3
audio while .mkv's typically have ac3, which masked the problem and threw me off).

I used "mplayer -ac ffmp3" and that worked, but I'll eventually recompile per your suggestion.

Thanks again for your help :D

Allow me to state again that -ac -mp3, will (likely) make decoding "faster"
(using less CPU resources) while -ac ffmp3 is slower on all ia32 and amd64
compatible systems.

Please do not top-post here, Carl Eugen

mad may be faster (I don't know), but you can also try -ac ffmp3 / -ac ffmp2
which I believe is faster on embedded (FPU-less) systems than mp3lib.

Java OSD on Linux

Hi,

I've been trying out the MPlayer -wid option to embed video into a Java window. 
It works just fine on Windows and, after I shipped around a few bumps, on Linux 
as well. However, on Windows, I am able to draw an OSD with Java on top of the 
video while on Linux I have not been able to find a way of drawing an OSD. On 
Windows, I can simply override the paint method of a JFrame or Canvas and 
whatever I paint there shows on top of the video. On Linux the same code will 
display only the video. Now I am wondering if anyone ever managed to draw an OSD 
in Java on top of MPlayer? Here is a bit more detail of what I have tried so 
far:

Create a JFrame, override its paint method, pass the JFrame window handle to 
MPlayer: Works just fine on Windows; on Linux I just get a grey window, no 
video, no OSD.

Create a Canvas, add it to the JFrame, override the Canvas paint method, pass 
the Canvas window handle to MPlayer: Works just fine on Windows, on Linux I get 
the video displayed but no OSD.

get the code from git.mplayerhq.hu, possible?

I have read
http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html
though,
there is a git mirror for online browsing only,

Is there any way to syncing with the repo by git, rather than svn?

I have tried git://git.mplayerhq.hu/mplayer.git , but failed.

If it is not possible now, would it be possible in the future?
