I just went back to the released version of 0x261d and VDR still crashes when
attempting to perform a recording while playing back a file with mplayer plugin.

I would like to clarify that MPlayer works fine if I am not using it via VDR
(Mplayer Plugin vs. Mplayer).  The problem is that VDR and MPlayer dont work
together anymore.  MP3's play fine.

This is the error that VDR gives me when I try to record something while I am
playing something with the mplayer plugin.
