The following sample can be converted with ffmpeg and plays fine with mplayer -demuxer mpegps and mplayer -demuxer lavf:
Playing with ffplay regularly drops frames

The PTS values seems broken. Framedrops happen when consecuitve frames has the same PTS values. Can be seen in mplayer -demuxer lavf as well, if you seek back to the start of the video. (I have no idea why that makes a difference in mplayer)

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Frame drops in ffplay should be resolved in 5ecfcc7dff04ff0e86d8b6b3a33709ae956dfef7.

Since the file is broken, and you can see diverging A-V delay even with the demuxer of mplayer, I don't think there is anything else we may do here.

Reopen if you think otherwise.

I tested the following:
$ ffmpeg -i mpeg+vc1+ac3++quazgaas_problem.evo -qscale 2 out.avi
$ ffmpeg -i mpeg+vc1+ac3++quazgaas_problem.evo -qscale 2 -strict -2
and played the output files with FFplay and MPlayer: Both play completely smooth afaict.
Playing mpeg+vc1+ac3++quazgaas_problem.evo with FFplay is significantly worse here.
