Hi Barry, thanks for the suggestion. 

I have checked this : Arte HD recordings I have just made with Kaffeine
play perfectly with mplayer (svn yesterday). So there's no basic
problem with my CPU power or with support for the stream by ffmpeg. 
When played back in kaffeine/xinelib the sound is missing or jittery.

Simul HD is a different story -- recordings play ok for a few tens of seconds
in mplayer (with some errors "warning: first frame is no keyframe") until a
hard crash with error "Internal error, picture buffer overflow" from mplayer.
In kaffeine it the recordings play with jittery sound and then crash at exactly the
same points with the same error.

Any ideas anyone?

Release early, release often.
