>From my experience, I can successfully pipe commands to mplayer through
mplayer's stdin. I can also create a pipe from mplayer's stdout but
whenever I retrieve info from mplayer via that fd, I get blocking and my
program locks up. I haven't found any code that has two way
communication with mplayer. Most frontends just seem to issue system()
commands or a single popen("mplayer", "w") pipe.
To work around this problem, I want to be able to pipe mplayer's stdout
to a file in which I can just purge anytime I want new data. However, I
don't know how I can do this. Mplayer doesn't have a -stdout=foo.txt
