I'm running VDR-1.3.33, vdr-xine-0.7.6 and vdr-mp3-0.9.13 (the latter 
with no source changes) and cannot reproduce your behaviour, at least 
not with just two sample images for two sample mp3 files.

Which version of mjpegtools do you use?

I remember a bug in mpeg2enc before mjpegtools-1.6.3-rc1 which failed to 
encode a test stream. But this is most likely not the problem in your 
case. To get my version of mpeg2enc working with the convert script, I 
had to add "-S 420mpeg2" to ppmtoy4m.

Maybe it has something to do with xine: how do run xine?

Bye.
