I have the something similar altough completely random. I suspect that there
is some locking missing in gstclock.c resulting in threads accessing an 
unprotected variable.

Anyway, I am now reworking the complete clock mess. I have rock solid
sink with seeking and skipping. It does not work very well with bad system
streams (and there are quite a lot of them). I will commit something soon.

I also might have found something for the MMX compilation problems you had.
I changed some of the constraints in the mmx.h asm statements from "X" to "m".

I Have no idea. would it be possible to send the MPEG or tell me where I can 
download it?


Some people cause happiness wherever they go; others, whenever they go.
