Can anyone attach a clip that reproduces the issue or upload it to the partner SFTP as per the sticky instructions?
Current mplayer2 (maybe mplayer too) crashes after complaining:
VDec: vo config request - 1280 x 720 (preferred colorspace: Planar 420P 10-bit little-endian)
Trying filter chain: vo
Could not find matching colorspace - retrying with -vf scale...
Opening video filter: [scale]
SwScale params: -1 x -1 (-1=no scaling)
Trying filter chain: scale vo
The selected video_out device is incompatible with this codec.
Try appending the scale filter to your filter list,
e.g. -vf spp,scale instead of -vf spp.
MPlayer interrupted by signal 11 in module: check_framedrop
Any Hi10p sample should do, I found some here: http://ps-auxw.de/10bit-h264-sample/
For convenience, I have also reuploaded one of those to your ftp "10bit-eldorado.mkv", I hope that was ok.
