Hi Mike!

Yes - same user! Any other ideas? :-/.

The video looks fine, there is just no audio (with the error messages
about the overflow which I posted before). It's really strange,
because myhtfrontend simply calls mplayer with the file name right? Or
is there any other magic going on which might cause this behaviour?
