The video has an mpeg2 video track and an ac3 audio track. Bear in mind that in many cases there may only be one or two libraries to support video/audio decoding for specific codecs, and the various programs available for video playback typically just link to those libraries. ffmpeg, for example, is a very common program/library that many video players use.

I understand that ffmpeg2 is supposed to be one of the best codecs. Is there any way to force a player to select a different one, so I can test them and see if a different one will work? Also, why does SMPlayer output look and sound better than MPlayer, since SMPlayer is a front end on MPlayer? I'm trying to figure out what my next step is in troubleshooting. Like I said, it used to be flawless - then an upgrade and it's been downhill ever since. Whatever it was that changed, there ought to be a way to put it back.
