oh no, that options sure is good at times, but it's an essential part of h264, any highly compressed file will look like crap with that disabled. for highbitrate files it's a different story. It should be added to gui thou.
that clip ezar is using AAC audio, wich also is very hard to decode thus audio adds another load on the cpu.
on another note. as pre what most mplayer devs say, framedropping is an abomination , thus there might be a point in allowing it to be disabled. for video's which play on the margin with just a few dropped frames, it is only detrimental as it will just make video look choppy. abit desync then would be a better choice.

That would be the best option.
[I added the line to my mplayer.conf, because I'm only playing dvd-resolution, 1000-2000 kbit avg encodes and they usually have deblocking enabled in the encode.]

I have tried the new MPlayer.dll date: 12/27/06 from XBMC Build: 01/02/07 inside the test folder of the T3CH SVN 2007-01-01 rev7469 PROPER. I get the following error:
00:25:09 M: 29818880 ERROR: CMPlayer::OpenFile : Access violation at 0x0129f3eb: Reading location 0x0000001c
00:25:09 M: 36823040 ERROR: Playlist Player: skipping unplayable item: 0, path [smb://VMWARE/starbig/Cromartie High School/01.mkv]
00:25:11 M: 29818880 ERROR: CMPlayer::OpenFile : Access violation at 0x0129f3eb: Reading location 0x0000001c
When I go back to version Mplayer dev-CVS-060924-20:59 I don't have the error everything works fine.
please let me know if you want more logging or what else I can do to help.

What was the content of the Matroska file? Maybe you can post a sample of your file, to make it easier for the developers.

Any hope at all that you could look into comitting the ASS/SSA subtitle rendering patch to your mplayer fork? It's been committed to the upstream mplayer for a while now, and it's the only new feature I'm interested in.

Here's a couple of quote from the XBMC FAQ for you to think about before asking for something:

x264 nero avc1 playback - kremb - 2007-01-05 02:22
uploaded testing (January 4th 2007) mplayer.dll to xbmc player folder for
when trying to play 2 hrs 23 mins at 700mb xyz.mp4 x264 nero avc1 results are as follows
I tried to search forward and the file restarted from the beggining.
after a minute or so, the playback is choppy and the audio studders and seems to stop.
location is on laptop on network, kills laptop cpu(100%) when it starts studdering after 1 min.
Displays Quicktime/MOV detected on startup.
I came over from
Hope this helps. This thread bookmarked.

I've been testing the new mplayer dll and found definite improvements in h264 decoding speed/playback, with so far no new bugs encountered (both from a self compiled version on 2006.12.27 and the dll downloaded from the start of this thread)...
I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to tweaking codec settings for encoding - I have been using Staxrip for encoding DVD rips to H264, using Sharktooth's Xbox Hi-res profile (no CABAC or deblocking) to avoid dropped frames.
I have now found that I am able to encode using the Xbox Lo-res profile (Sharktooth's once again), which enables CABAC and deblocking, though I have to disable deblocking. The lo-res profile also alters other settings, such as using b-frame pyramid and weighted prediction, that aren't used in the hi-res profile.
I have converted some PAL DVDs (16:9 tv series) to H264 at 720x400 res, using AC3 2.0, aac and mp3 audio in different test files, at approx 1250 kbps avg (video) bitrate. All have played without any dropped frames so far, from HDD and via SMB or ccx over a LAN (AC3 passed to an amp for decoding though).
I'm currently encoding another PAL DVD of a 4:3 tv series to H264 @ 704x528 res - approx 2000kbps video bitrate, with mp3 sound using the same settings... fingers crossed it plays fine too...
Hope this helps any other relative noobs out there who want decent quality encodes but still use an all-in-one type gui like Staxrip - Sharktooth's profiles can also be imported into megui.
A huge thankyou to elupus and any other developers who have worked on porting the mplayer updates to xbmc... you just keep on making an already great app even better
