I downloaded a video that someone had apparently directly captured from 
digital television, and upon attempting to play it with the version of 
mplayer in Debian GNU/Linux (unstable) was able to see the video but had 
no sound. I was able to do an "mplayer -dumpaudio" on it and play the 
stream.dump file using mplayer without problem.

I also tried building mplayer from source, which froze on the video and 
didn't play any sound either.

My bug report in Debian is at:


I am happy to run further tests, but would like to know what I should 
run to provide more information to help pinpoint the issue.
