i.MX35 QSB: Update to BSP 11.09 breaks FullHD playback?

I just updated my i.MX35 QSB microSD using the new packages from the 11.09 BSP release, and FullHD playback stopped working now.

I can play back some 720p material I have, but none of the 1080p clips do work.


Below is what I get as output. Did anybody else try upgrading and had similar problems? Is this a known issue (did not find anything concerning this, though), or was 1080p disabled due to memory bandwidth limitations?

(The  "socket(): Address family not supported by protocol" was there before, too, and did not cause any problems, so seems to be unrelated.)


Any hints what I might be doing wrong are appreciated!


Thank you,
