Could someone try playing the following file?
I haven't got any feedback yet from the initial bug report I filed a
couple weeks ago yet.
I'd really like to know if this slow play problem is particular to my
machine/setup or if everyone who tries this file has the same issue.
If bugs were to be ranked by "most files enabled to play properly by
fixing a single bug", -- after having tested several hundred files, I
get the definite feeling that this bug would be very near the top of the
I'd like to see this bug get added to Ronald's media not playing tracker
bug if folks think that would be appropriate.
Any and all feedback greatly appreciated -- Thanks!

I didn't test yet, but I've seen this behaviour. Wim has debugged this
when I told him about it some time ago, and we cam to the conclusion
that spider inserts too many loopbased elements (spideridentities) for
opt to handle the case correctly. We had two possible solutions: 1) use
another scheduler, 2) use another autoplugger (or 3) both). I first
decided to go for (1) but noticed that spider had other issues as well.
I (and Wim) am (are) now working on some media playback related issues,
and this issue is one of them, and I think we now have a way of not
getting this anymore. You'll get more news about that on the mailinglist
in 1-2 weeks.
I've added the bug to #138435, I'll give it some testing this weekend
(or monday; when I'm done moving) and will let you know if it works fine
