   This is Cortado 0.5.1.

   Built in stripped mode.
   Built from git branch Xiph, revision 0.5.1
   Running on Java VM 1.6.0_17 from Sun Microsystems Inc.
   Using the javax.sound backend.

That's right.

It loads the video but goes almost instantly to the end, like a 
super-fast-forward. It is actually 3 minutes long but plays in about 1 
second, only showing a couple frames. Well, the numbers at the 
bottom-right advance slowly, but the video and the slider control go 
straight to the end.

Also, if the video window is resized (applet size != video size) or the 
page is zoomed, the image "breaks" with random rectangular areas 
appearing misplaced.

The video plays OK in Firefox or Chrome within a <video> element.
