err i misread you ...

yeah, xine & mplayer seem to be a bit flaky in amd64 atm compared to x86 in 
terms of supporting a wide variety of formats

on x86, i rarely found a media file that neither xine or mplayer would play 
properly, but on amd64 it's harder to get those random formats to play nicely 
(or at all) :(
