[FFmpeg-user] mmco: unref short failure error and freeze playback of video streams

Hi Everbody,

I'm using mplayer/ffmpeg to playback 4 h264 streams generated by
ip-camera's. The four streams will play just fine for about 70
minutes. Then one of the four streams generates the following message
and all four streams stop playing:

[h264 @ 0x8a7c520]Missing reference picture
[h264 @ 0x8a7c520]decode_slice_header error
[h264 @ 0x8a7c520]mmco: unref short failure

I'm using mplayer-vaapi (latest greatest from the top of my head
10-2012) with a git checkout of ffmpeg (15-02-2012).

Does anybody have any idea what could have gone wrong here?
