Simple player doesn't play an H.264 video that mplayer & Quicktime plays
Simple player doesn't play an H.264 video that mplayer & Quicktime plays. It doesn't crash or show any warning.. Well it just doesn't play. It starts and finishes without doing anything (OK I am sure it does something, but doesn't show it).
FYI. I am using 64-bit Linux. All other h264 videos just work fine with simple_player. Except this one.
also FYI here is what Mplayer outputs when playing the file
