I believe this indicates that your probing functions 
are broken (ie: This should not happen).

Same score is not necessarily a problem, but if 
one demuxer returns MAX on probing, probing stops 
afair (so the other demuxer that would also return 
MAX is never probed).

You can force a demuxer from the command line.
