Yes, if the extra CPU load by mplayer is not even noticeable when
VDR recordings, and it is not prone to any type or desync, then I
vote we all
try to figure out what mplayer is doing and repeat it. Whats a few
cycles if it becomes much much more stable in the end.
The reason i mentioned the dvbplayer.c thread, is that this problem
was mitigated by using different code to feed the softdevice mpeg2
decoder; using softplay to playback recordings provided dropout free
playback. I'm not sure if softplay works with FF cards, but you might
get the source at softdevice.berlios.de to give it a try.
