i have experienced the same problems,
lot's of color corruption when playing
several avi sounds, sound should work
well (normally). the reason for the occasional sound could be slow cpu
what i have found out is, that same happens when using the sdl library
for displaying graphics. There seems to be a broken code, when it comes
to bitmasking for the different colors, (example: 16 bit color mode
would give you 2 times 5 bits for blue and red and 6 bits for green,
when a color uses 7 bits, an overflow would occure producing strange effects)
anyhow i don't know who to blame (kernel, X - i am using still Xfree 4.3, or
the mplayer/sdl output layer)
btw. the conversion from one codec to another work good (avi to mpeg) so
i don't believe that the problem is codec dependent.
