Comment(by Julio Matienzo <jmatienzo@…>):

 Replying to [comment:5 tralph]:
 > Julio, the sample doesn't play in the latest versions of any FFmpeg-
 based players including mplayer, MythTV and XBMC. It also fails to play
 with FFmpeg's own player, ffplay. The only way to get this fixed is to
 submit a ticket directly to FFmpeg and provide a sample. After a fix is
 applied to upstream FFmpeg it can be backported to MythTV.

 I just install ubuntu 8.04 on Virtual Box and played the file in
 VLC,Mplayer,ffplay and mythtv 0.21. I installed Mythbuntu 10.04 and can
 get the file to play in VLC and Mplayer, but not all of the time. The only
 thing I see is maybe the file headers where ignore in earlier FFmpeg
 versions. Thank you for looking into this I will open a ticket with
 FFmpeg, again thanks.
