I’ve managed to make another bunch of Worms videos to work correctly and plan to commit that patch soon. Here is one frame from TV.AVI:

Worms watching TV

Looks like they’re watching UZI.AVI from previous Worms, eh?

Too bad that correct output can be obtained through FFmpeg transcoding only. Those happens because of different handling of ‘palette change’ block in AVI:

  • FFmpeg handles it okay
  • FFplay also handles it but palette change event is de-synchronized and usually displayed frame has wrong colors.
  • MPlayer is treating palette change chunks in AVI as usual frame data, thus causing decoder errors and wrong colors.

I don’t know the situation with Xine and VLC but suspect it’s nothing good there also.
