That is a bit of a concern. While I have found the Internal player to be 
improving and I use it most of the time, I still need to use other 
players such as mplayer on occasion. I thought mplayer and Internal were 
both based on ffmpeg libraries so I'm not sure why mplayer would work 
when Internal does not. Perhaps it is a timing issue of when the libs 
are picked up?
