I'm trying to watch video clips from Linux.conf.au. The videos are theora and vorbis in an ogg container. I'm using mplayer to play them.
They seem ok, until I try to fast forward or rewind then things get all screwed up. Sometimes the display sticks with the progress bar on screen, but the audio continues to play. If I use the lavf demuxer it lets me fast forward but seems to cause the playback to become "jerky" with a stop/start skipping kind of feel to it. My desktop behaves a little better than the laptop, but what the heck is going on.... apparently I'm the only one who has these problems because I can't find an issue even somewhat similar on google.
If you read this, and know a solution let me know. For now, I'm re-encoding with mencoder and watching an it as an mpeg in avi :-(
