Bug Description

When I try to play either a local mp4 or network stream mplayer just crashes and will not plays. Here is an example of what I get.

rican-linux@ibookG4-UbuntuMATE:~/Videos$ mplayer linuxactionshowep356-432p.mp4
MPlayer2 2.0-728-g2c378c7-4 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: demux_open
- 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.

Here is the backtrace
