Default SV8 support in various players

Hello,

I've found out some popular Linux audio players have difficulties in playing SV8 files. Here's what I found:

- MPlayer 201106 plays SV7 well + some SV8 (sadly, not every file - there are very loud clicks and the progress bar loops)
- xine (lib1.1.9) plays SV7 well but doesn't support seeking, no SV8 support (?)
- vlc 1.11 plays SV7 but SV8 stops after a second
- audacious 2.4.5 (with plugin) plays SV7 & SV8 perfectly
- foobar2000 1.1.8beta4 through wine plays SV7 & SV8 perfectly

Have you experienced similar problems? I'm actually concerned the most about MPlayer because I'd like to play every SV8 file through Amarok with MPlayer backend.

Strangely the Windows builds of VLC and MPlayer work fine for me. I suggest notifying the respective software developers. Thanks for the report. If you have a sample that fails with MPlayer for you, please email it to me.

Thanks for the sample, same issue with the Windows MPlayer build, very strange. I wonder if they're using something other than our library. We'll check, but definitely better notify them as well. The VLC build plays it fine by the way.

I reported the bug to the MPlayer bugzilla.

I got reply from the MPlayer community:

It seems like there's a problem in FFmpeg (MPlayer uses some it's parts for decoding various audio and video formats).
