Latest SVN on Linux

. Aspect of my attempts looks like 16:9 when it starts as 4:3. I remember 
some changes being made a while back regarding aspect and I am _fairly_

. MPlayer runs with audio and video way out of sync, yet VLC plays with 
everthing appearing well synced.

. Even though -vvv show that vlc probes correctly the frame rate of the 
source, I still get "Missing frame rate, assuming 25fps" from 
modules/mux/ogg.c. Source is NTSC. If I hack that section of ogg.c to be 
29.970, the resultant file is definitely not in sync.

Hoping this type of report helps,
