[matroska @ 0xa8d9470] Estimating duration from bitrate, this may be inaccurate

Too many audio packets in the buffer: (4100 in 1570300 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.

ffplay is great though navigation & control is best in mplayer

I also thought of ripping the video to playable format but mencoder could not extract even audio from it
Code:
mencoder  I.Am.Legend.2007.BRrip.720p.Dual.Audio.Eng.Hindi.By.Kamran444.mkv  -of rawaudio -oac mp3lame -ovc copy  -o i-am-legend-sound_size.mp3

For AVI files, try to force non-interleaved mode with the -ni option.
Though allocating 150MB for sound & 550MB for video with video bitrate of 700k :- ffmpeg did the job.

Question remains :-what is lacking in my mplayer that it could not play original video ?
