mplayer crashes with 32-bit cpu but not 64-bit cpu
I am testing Lubuntu 12.04 RC in an IBM Thinkpad T41 without pae but with sse2 and a Dell Dimension 4600 with pae and sse2. The default video player Mplayer crashes in these machines, but it works *very well* in my 64-bit machines. None of these computers have sse3 (but all have sse2).
The video clip was made with my video camera and was processed with ffmpeg. It contains no sub-titles, only audio and video streams. VLC can play the file in all these computers.
The reason why I file this bug is that I am do not think it is the same as the one reporting about lack of sse3, and I wanted to show the output to the terminal window as it is now (it has changed during the beta testing phase, probably because of some debugging effort).

It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
