The file at cortado.jar is the most recent release.  Can you provide
an example video that it doesn't play? It plays 1.1 encoded files fine
for me.

Can you be far more specific about "does not play"? How does it fail?
Does the video not start? Do you get colored video snow? Do you get

Can you provide the cortado version you see from rightclick->about?

You should see:
"Built on 2009-11-05 20:59:19 GMT
Built in stripped mode.
Built from git branch Xiph, revision 0.5.1"

If it says something else then you are using an old cached copy.

The cortado you're linking to is old and has a number of serious know
bugs and deficiencies. (likewise for the one used on the
~oggk/elephants_dream page)

With your help we can hopefully get whatever issue you're seeing fixed quickly.
