Is there a particular codec that is needed to play these files
properly?  I've had all sorts of trouble getting mplayer to output
anything other than a black window (and now that I've started playing
with it again, I'm just getting segfaults)..

Here is the output at the end of a run of MPlayer's configure script:

    Config files successfully generated by ./configure !

And here is the output of running a patched MPlayer 0.90rc1 (I got
similar results with rc3):

    MPlayer interrupted by signal 8 in module: demux_open 
    - MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM. Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and disassembly. For details, see DOCS/bugreports.html section 5.b.
    - 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/bugreports.html and follow instructions there. We can't and won't help unless you provide these informations when reporting a possible bug.

Any insights?
