smplayer failed to play mkv


as the title above, it failed playing mkv but totem can play it just fine
Code:
[h264 @ 0x7f3be8ee5600]AVC: nal size 122945
[h264 @ 0x7f3be8ee5600]no frame!
Error while decoding frame!

Error while decoding frame!

Too many audio packets in the buffer: (4100 in 702036 bytes).
Maybe you are playing a non-interleaved stream/file or the codec failed?
For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.

Are you using mplayer from the stock debian repo or the one from debian multimedia? If so, use the 2nd.

i'm using the one from stock debian repo

i tried adding debian multimedia repo and do apt-pinning by trying higher and lower priority number than squeeze but both pulls from main. How would i be able to install from debian multimedia?

below is my preferences file content:
Code:
ackage: *
Pin: origin www.debian-multimedia.org
Pin-Priority: 100

Package: *
Pin: release a=squeeze
Pin-Priority: 300

Package: *
Pin: release a=debian
Pin-Priority: 200
the last repo is linux mint debian edition

What does "apt-cache policy mplayer" show you about mplayer? Here is what I get on my laptop, where I dont use apt-pinning.
Code:
$ apt-cache policy mplayer
mplayer:
  Εγκατεστημένα: (κανένα)
  Υποψήφιο:      3:1.0~rc4-0.1
  Πίνακας Έκδοσης:
     3:1.0~rc4-0.1 0
        500 http://ftp.uni-kl.de/debian-multimedia/ testing/main i386 Packages
     2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1-2 0
        500 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ testing/main i386 Packages
On a regular upgrade, apt would upgrade it to the debian multimedia one, since it's a "newer" version.

Please note that I am not using the regular mplayer package but mplayer-nogui which is only available in debian-multimedia.
It works in the same manner as the regular mplayer, so if you install it it will probably replace "plain" mplayer and smplayer will use it as an mplayer binary with no extra configuration.

# apt-cache policy smplayer
Code:
smplayer:
  Installed: 0.6.9-1
  Candidate: 0.6.9-1
  Version table:
 *** 0.6.9-1 0
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ squeeze/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
even with
# aptitude -t www.debian-multimedia.org install smplayer

apt still pulls from main

What's in your sources.list?,also you are looking at the smplayer package and not mplayer.
I get the same as jim p:

Code:
ade@Pc1:~$ apt-cache policy mplayer
mplayer:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 3:1.0~rc4-0.1
  Version table:
     3:1.0~rc4-0.1 0
        990 http://debian-multimedia.org/ wheezy/main amd64 Packages
     2:1.0~rc4.dfsg1-2 0
        990 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main amd64 Packages
        500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages

What is this? It would seem you are mixing the LMDE repo's with Debian. I don't see any MPlayer packages in the LMDE repo but I am concerned about some sort of repository conflict, especially considering you are running stable and LMDE is based on testing.

I can't say if that's the problem but its something to consider.

Mixing linuxmint with squeeze may lead to problems

I confirm that mixing packages from linuxmint with squeeze may lead to problems, unless you know very well what you are doing.

You will probably find easier reinstalling everything from scratch than trying to fix the huge mess you will obtain after several packages are installed.

You have been warned!

Get rid of these repos:
deb http://packages.linuxmint.com/ debian main upstream import

## libreoffice
deb http://download.tuxfamily.org/gericom/libreoffice / #gericom@hummer

LibreOffice is in backports. And Mint LMDE is based on testing not stable which is what you are running.

A Suggested sources.list, which includes backports and debian-multimedia.org
