mplayer crashes on certain files

my mplayer is crashing on certain files,
and on my observations it seems to be *.mkv files only.

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: init_audio_codec

with -nosound:

MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: video_read_frame

even though i put mplayer's verbose message open, the only error i could find is the above.
it seems mplayer managed to crash itself in different modules, but i have no idea why.
plz help.

- 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.

I'm using smplayer 0.6.7-1,  mplayer 29188-2 (from testing)

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

I have the same issue. Most (all?) mkv files crash with mplayer-29188-2. mplayer-29188-1 works fine. I have x86_64.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

glad to find some unfortunate company neutral
my guess is that we are all running a x86_64 system ?

anyways, i could build from any source, but still getting the same result.
this includes ABS, or mplayer-nogui-svn in the AUR.

Segmentation fault 11 happens to my system so often after recent updates.

*update: downgrade to extra/mplayer 28347-4 works fine, that means it's mplayer's issue.

*update 2:
I tried to compile from abs, version of which is 29188-2.
At first, still gets a Segfault 11, so I enabled --enable-debug option in mplayer configuration to see what exactly is making it crash.

And, surprisingly, it stopped crashing and played the stupid mkv file .......
I started to consider if this is some kind of joke that's been put into mplayer's codes.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

Yeah x86_64 here aswell, going to try building one of the multithreaded versions of mplayer anyway so will see if they are the same

EDIT: If you have a multicore cpu then try mplayer-mt-nogui-git from AUR, built fine for me and mkv files now play

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

If a rebuild fixes the problem and a bug report hasn't already been filed, please do so.

I too have the same problem. x86_64 also.
No problem with previous versions of Mplayer.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

I'm getting  this too, except I'm i686
mplayer from the repos works fine, but I'm getting it when I build mplayer-svn with --enable-vdpau

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

I don't think it has anything to do with VDPAU, I'm getting it with --disable-vdpau as well. I'm currently compiling different versions to see when it happened. I already have a patch for the fribidi configure bug that was causing link errors during compilation.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

I'm getting the same error too, it seems to happen in all my mkv files (btw, avi mp4 work just fine), and simply rebuilding the package in the repos doesn't solve the problem sad

Will try mplayer-mt-nogui-git.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

These issues are introduced with GCC 4.4.0

Mplayer is the official repos includes a patch to fix this, or you can also try adding the following to the ./configure line:

CFLAGS="-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer" ./configure ...

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

I don't use archlinux, but I have/had the same problem on Fedora11. I was unable to play matroska video files with mplayer.
I got the same error: MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: init_audio_codec
The patch didn't solve the problem, however the command: CFLAGS="-O2 -fomit-frame-pointer" ./configure
did solve the problem. Thanks, I am now able to play matroska video files.

Re: mplayer crashes on certain files

For some files I have to use af=resample=48000:1:2, but that could just be related to dmix/mbeq.
