mplayer playing death note too fast
« on: January 03, 2007, 04:31:49 am »
I just started watching some stuff on my linux laptop the other day (ubuntu 6.10), and came down to death note in my rotation of things I watch.  However, it was not cooperating very well with the mplayer I just compiled last night.  I just built it from the latest release source (1.0rc1-4.1.2), and it has been handling everything else very well.

The odd part is, it seems to play normally if I go to the command line and launch it like:
Code: [Select]
mplayer \[Live-evil\]_Death_Note_12_\[8F9A53FE\].avibut not if I launch it from clicking the video file from the file browser...

Very strange indeed!

Has anybody ever come across this?  Is there anything I can post to help find a solution?

*cringe*  I guess it's back to VLC for tonight :'(

Hm...... If you can figure out how to get to it, you may want to check the command line that the file browser is using when you tell it to open the file, and see if anything is weird there.  If you can find that out, you may be able to work toward a solution.
