The AVI seems to play fine for me with git master (soon to become 1.0.2), though I'm not sure if the picture is up-side-down or not, hard to tell. mplayer plays it with the end bit at the top, with GStreamer the end bit is at the bottom. Which one is right?

The qtdemux one only mplayer can play here. Moving to qtdemux for now.
