Hm, apparently it is actually because of Windows file reading
mechanisms. It tells mplayer it hit the end of file even though there is
over 150 megabytes left. I suspect this happens exactly at where the end
of file was when mplayer opened the file, and I can confirm that it
happens very close to there, checking the length of the file when
starting mplayer and checking what it tried to read when it failed.
There must be some workaround, though. Maybe I will have time to look
more into this and make a patch during the weekend.
