          The OS was show in my sig script at the bottom of the e-mail 
message, but at any rate I am using Debian 2.4.19...

> - what is your version of VLC?
        This I am not sure of, I tried using the HELP cmd in the menu 
which sometime tells one what version it is, this one         
doesn't...So how do I find out which vewrsion it is...???

> - what does the "Messages" window output?
        Now as for what does the "message window" output say... Well 
since I do not know how I can output it to a file,         so I can 
attach it to this e-mail msg, here are a few of the warnings, & errors, 
which I will typr in for you                     below...

        Main error: option frequence does not refer to a string...
        Main error: option symbol-rate does not refer to a string...
        Main error: libmad error: bad main_data_begin pointer...
        mpgatofixed32 warning: libmad error: bad_main_data_begin pointer...
        Main warning: late picture skipped (212726)
        Plus seven more of the above except the numbers are different...

        One more question, I have used CVS, once this has been update, 
what does one need to do if I might ask...

        Thanks for any help on this matter... ;-)
