Hello mplayer devs,

Attached to this email is a patch which i wrote about a year ago that
lets you play files in uncompressed, multi-volume rar files, as long as
there is only one video file inside the rars (which is often the case).

It probably (surely) isn't ready for inclusion in mplayer as-is, has no
error reporting, and doesn't work on rar files with compression.
However, I've been using it a lot for about a year now without any
problems. Do with it what you wish :)

I also attached the bash file that i use to play these rar's which shows
how to use this patch.


p.s. this is a 2nd email, because the previous one is being held in
moderation as i was not yet subscribed. the kind people on irc told me
it was better to send it again so there.
