Bug#550572: mplayer: ffvorbis chosen over tremor on armel

Package: mplayer
Version: 1.0~rc3+svn20090405-1
Severity: normal

On armel (OpenMoko FreeRunner), the ffvorbis audio decoder is too slow
to play Ogg Vorbis tracks without skipping. The tremor decoder however
is perfectly fine since it doesn't use floating point math; the
FreeRunner lacks an FPU IIRC. I'm currently working around this with a
line in ~/.mplayer/config that disables ffvorbis:


It would be nice if that were not necessary, mplayer should check if the
CPU supports floating point or has an FPU and choose the appropriate
decoder based on that.
