Comment(by Derek Atkins <warlord at mit.edu>):


 I just (finally) got a chance to try this patch.  While it does keep myth
 from crashing, it also causes myth to stop playing the video completely.
 It pops up a window that says "Failed to Reinit Video." and gives me a
 single option "Return to menu."  When I select that it pops up another
 window that says "Error was encountered while displaying video." and also
 gives me a single option, "Return to menu."  At this point it will (after
 about 15 seconds of black screen) go back to the menu.

 I must admit that this isn't the behavior I was hoping for...  I was
 hoping that the video would ignore the broken frames and just keep on
