It used to work, but after several updates I have a "flickering" problem when playing a mpeg2 transport stream in mplayer.
The flickering disappears when i apply some video filter (for instance -vf pp=fd)
The problem occurs both for interlaced and progressive content. (only for mpeg2)
Both for the mplayer in the official repository and mplayer compiled by myself.
I can upload a TS sample if anyone interested.
