That seems to have fixed the problem, or atleast i wasn't able to make it
But there is something wierd going on with the audio, it's "choppy" small
pauses in the audio. This also affects the video playback.
If i pause it plays fine for a few seconds, it soudns good until the osd
fades out, then it starts soudning bad again.

It looks like this audio problems is only in the begining of the file, but i
coud be wrong since i haven't watched the recording very long.
