Thanks, this does prevent crashing. mplayer is still dropping B-frames,
though, with the result that you get messages like:

[h264 @ 0x85ae700]error, NO frame
Error while decoding frame!

It appears to me that this occurs once for each dropped frame. I've
gotten contradictory suggestions about whether the unwanted framedropping
is ffmpeg's fault, or mplayer's fault.
