My problems with your module seem somewhat related to the power the 
running machine has.
On OSX (my low low-end machine) it locks up everything completely and 
generates loads of PTS out of range, dropping buffer warnings.
It does 4 sec lock up, 1 sec a/v burst, 4 sec lock up, 1 sec burst etc. 

On my linux machine which is just a tad faster, i get further. I see 
the effect, and i get no lock ups, yet still the a/v is in bursts.

i get loads of pts is out of range dropping buffer errors
beyond that i get:
late picture skipped (caused by lock up moments i think)
ouput PTS is out of range, clearing out
input PTS is out of range, trashing
computed PTS is out of range, clearing out
audio output is too slow, trashing (not as often as the ones above)
audio output is starving, playing silence (same story)

Besides that alsa module reports:
recovered from buffer underrun (also not that often)

However, after a minute or so (maybe even less, it recovers correctly, 
and everything seems to works as it ought to.

So i think this is a buffer problem somewhere, or an incorrect 
initialization. I'm not sure. Something is definitely still wrong.
