Package: mplayer
Version: 2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1-2
Severity: important


Since the latest update mplayer cannot play any file I could get my hands on.
When I downgraded mplayer all files played nicely. I've run gdb and the output
is below.

Please let me know what other info I can provide.

- MPlayer crashed by an 'Illegal Instruction'.
  It may be a bug in our new runtime CPU-detection code...
  Please read DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html.
- MPlayer crashed by bad usage of CPU/FPU/RAM.
  Recompile MPlayer with --enable-debug and make a 'gdb' backtrace and
  disassembly. Details in DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports_what.html#bugreports_crash.
- MPlayer crashed. This shouldn't happen.
  It can be a bug in the MPlayer code _or_ in your drivers _or_ in your
  gcc version. If you think it's MPlayer's fault, please read
  DOCS/HTML/en/bugreports.html and follow the instructions there. We can't and
  won't help unless you provide this information when reporting a possible bug.
