Bug Description

Binary package hint: mplayer

I get the following message when trying to play back certain mov files:
"constant samplesize & variable duration not yet supported! Contact the author if you have such sample file!"
And here is the mov file: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/media2/eu-doubled.mov
And all the videos on this page shows the same error message: http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/elegant/program_d.html

I'm using hardy.
mplayer: 2:1.0~rc2-0ubuntu13

(gstreamer(Totem) also fails to play these, but in a different way... That seems to be something with chapters...)

Changed in mplayer:
status: Unknown → Confirmed

I don't have access to this files, but please retry it now, because mplayer uses now another demuxer.
