Mplayer Crashes on Current Video Suddenly on Data DVD Playback

I started watching DVD's (In data form, NOT media.) I ran the videos through Mplayer after a typical mount to /cdrom, and after about 30-50 mins, Mplayer will freeze up, and stop playing that video. It proceeds to start at the next video as if I had told the last episode to stop. (I used mplayer /cdrom/(directory)/*.)

Unfortunately, it appears to be on the same sectors of a disk (In other words, it will freeze at the same spots, sometimes different ones, but mostly the same ones), and it wouldn't happen if I just copied to the computer. However, I'd like to avoid such a hassle, and would rather it not freeze up, and stop working.

Also I run a custom alias to prevent any subtitles from being too small, and aoss so if I run Wine to play World of Warcraft or another program, they won't clash, but overlap instead.

user@user:~$ cat ~/.bashrc | grep mplayer
alias mplayer="aoss mplayer -subfont-text-scale 2"
I doubt that has anything to do with it, but I thought I'd post it.

I am currently running Ubuntu Hardy, latest updates, latest Envy drivers for my nVidia 7600, not sure about mplayer, but I updated about 3 months ago, doubt that would change much.

Also, I burned the disks as data disks using K3B, if that might have any contribution.

Any input or help would be great. - - Thanks!

try gdb?

Have you tried running mplayer with gdb, if you have added all the debugging features to mplayer?
