literally, reimar fixed it in svn today before he sent that email.

since raw video has no header, its up to mplayer to guess. mplayer devs
dont care to guess raw stuff so its left up to the user. if user is
going to use raw , user must know dimensions and such.

alternatively, its been known that mplayer's rawdec has had problems in
some situations. which is why i added all of the ffraw* decoders to

should we put mplayer's raw decoders under ffmpeg's raw decoders in
codecs.conf ?

are there any bugs our decoders vs ffmpeg decoders?
(i'd like to drop our raw support, in the future, and let ffmpeg handle
it, if possible. but this is way way in the future...)
