I was wrong saying that the file plays fine with mplayer; it
crashes after some minutes with:

[flv @ 0x868d8b8]illegal ac vlc code at 2x99/999  0%  0%  0.2% 0 0

Exiting... (End of file)

This is with mplayer 1.0rc1-3.4.6, don't know if this is an mplayer
fault or if the file is corrupt.

Does this file (...1parte.flv) plays fine for you, even if you
don't speek Spanish :-)

my multimedia/p5-FLV-Info is 0.15, will update asap; but more me
worries that the file is not playing; it was only nice to have to
put the files into some HTML page (as embedded SWF), but more important
is that I can view them offline...

thanks for all your hints in any case;
