Okay, with this patch, I now can reproduce it. I have grab a fix[1] from  
gentoo and it gets build further, but it fails on ffmpeg. I guess it  
doesn't work with new ffmpeg either.

I don't have any of video file in here, but I have searched in google and  
found this file.

I couldn't get it runs with both gmp4player and mp4player. It works fine  
with totem. Maybe I can try to check in mpeg4ip CVS to see if there has  
anything fix for it. If not, then I can't help (due to lack knowledge) so  
someone will have to fix it.
