Hi, Ivan. I already tried to use this parameter. I didn't check the code,
but anyway for me it doesn't make any difference. If you have the time,
please try this

mplayer -playlist "
-cache 1024 -cache-min 90 -bandwidth 200000

and modify the bandwidth parameter at will (e.g. 50000, 900000). The video
will become choppy after a few seconds, after you watch the buffer
relentlessly be consumed until it is zeroed.

what I don't  get is why the same url works in other players. where is the
difference in mplayer?
