Have you been reading this thread? JYA just posted about how 185 is
unstable and he took it out of his stable repository because he and
many others have had problems with it. It is still in his testing
repository. When I ran 185 I had all kinds of problems not just with
video playback, but I had problems when using OpenGL for the mythtv
menus. I closed out myth and had blocking and stuff even on my
desktop. I rolled back to 180.60 and everything was fine for me.
