Ok, this one really has me stumped - I'm running amd64 natty and playing video kills X after a few frames of video. What confuses me is that it will crash with GUI/frontend players (Totem, SMPlayer), yet the same video will run fine with mplayer from a terminal window. Video is VIA K8M890CE/K8N890CE onboard, which does not fully support unity. X appears to be using the openchrome driver, but there doesn't seem to be any meaningful info in the log files about the crash itself.
