Thanks for looking into this Peter! I'm actually replying here because
I'm a was a little surprised when I saw this email, as I don't see the
comment when I go to the bug itself:


The last one I see is mine. Was the above comment deleted or
something? Thanks again!

By the way...yea that's not an ideal sample and seems to have audio
issues as well and is also an odd sample rate, but it is a case where
vdpau decoding works for me in xine but mythtv falls back to software
due to those decode errors.
