Package: smplayer
Version: 0.8.0-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

With recently installed version of smplayer I have noticed gradual de-synchronization 
between video and audio while playing videofiles of almost any type. Adjusting
Options/Preferences/Audio/Synchronization/ seems didn't work at all. However, 
providing mplayer with correct frame rate via -fps <value> either in 
Options/Preferences/Advanced/Options for MPlayer/ or in 
Options/View info and properties.../MPlayer options/ solved the problem completely.
Notice: the <value> for -fps was taken from smplayer's file info.

Thus, it looks like smplayer reads and reports video frame rate correctly.
However, what is then passed back by default to mplayer doesn't match the
correct value.

Confirmed for smplayer 0.8.0-1 and mplayer_2_3a.10 to mplayer_3_3a.11 available
from repositories stable to unstable.
