Great !

You're making me curious :)

Yep, that did it for me, so I commited that.  I commited a similar fix
to dvddemux over mpegdemux because for me it was always picking
mpegdemux to playback mpeg files, and it failed spectacularly.

The first bug is indeed fixed in CVS, I verified.

I guess we'll take our chances for now with the oss probing :)

So, if no other bugs are reported, I'll do the final release tomorrow. 
It's not too late to suggest release names.
