Upgraded libmpeg2-0.5.1-2 causes dvdrip to crash when beginning a transcode operation on a .vob file. Also causes nautilus to crash when requesting file properites of a .vob file. Nautilus also no longer shows .vob thumbnails. Downgrading to libmpeg2-0.5.1-1 resolves the issue.

Have not yet tested on other mpeg file types or generated a stacktrace as after finding the culprit, I now have a very large transcoding operation in progress (approx 48 hrs).

However, running both nautilus and dvdrip from a terminal generates no errors upon crash.

Confirmed on x86_64, untested on i686.

Additional info:
dvdrip 0.98.11-9
nautilus 3.0.2-1

Steps to reproduce:
- launch dvdrip and create a project
- rip .vob file from a dvd
- set transcode options to .avi container and xvid codec
- start transcode, dvdrip will freeze then crash after approx 30 secs.

- launch nautilus
- navigate to directory containing .vob files (ripped from dvdrip)
- nautilus does not display a thumbnail on the file
- open context menu of a .vob file
- select properties option and nautilus crashes.
This task depends upon
