Do you know, whether this random generator is used by transcode or 
mencoder? if not, i can exclude this from being the the source of the

I allready used 'memtest' for a couple of hours without any error. I 
will give 'cpuburn-in' a try. If that also does not show anything, i 
will come back to this thread, ok?

BTW: Do you have any test programms, which test xvid without relying on 
other software as transcode/mencoder? That would be great to sort them 

Thanks for your help so far!
