>  files, in order to get 3 percents shorter size files.
> I tried one sample under windows : the file is played smoothly under
>  Windows Media Player. Under vlc 1.0.3, the time cursor jumps from 1s to
>  58s, as soon as it begins to play, and many times after, but it does not

> Under Linux, latest kaffeine, amaroK and vlc (compiled from latest) are

> I you are interested to have a look on this tools and the sample ogg file,
>  you can provide to me an url to upload the stuff to your server.
> Unfortunately, you won't be able to get this utility from Internet anymore.
> Also I don't know about the author, and I read that he did not want to be

> At least, you could have a look to enhance vlc player robustness.
