Just please consider linking the Win32 binary with libmpeg-0.4.1 and not
libmpeg-0.5.1. The changes between those two versions are not that
critical IMHO, but using 0.4.1 avoids crashes on AR changes.

Using --codec=ffmpeg works just by coincidence better, as ffmpeg seems
to screw timing after AR change and VLC decides to drop the pictures
immediately following the change as late pictures. But the main problem
described in #1924 applies the same way - vout shouldn't be destroyed
and again re-created after AR change. This would need some more time to
implement, so I believe using libmpeg2-0.4.1 will be the easiest "fix"
for 0.9.2.

  With kind regards,
