Likely a UDP problem (buffers too small somewhere), especially if it 
goes away on lower (e.g. 320x240 or 640x480) resolutions. If that's the 
case, adding "--rtsp_transport tcp" on the command line will solve the 

I assume you use rtsp; please post exact (uncut, copy&paste) command 
line and output of an ffplay invocation that exhibits the problems. 
Also, please don't post same question twice.
