Hi mplayer people,
I have found that when streaming radio stations with mplayer, they are a lot more likely to recover from lost streams or changes to the next song/program if the "-loop 0" option is supplied. Unfortunately this is not explained in the man page (I only found out from looking at a lot of obscure internet sites).
Currently the man page says:
Loops movie playback <number> times. 0 means forever.
Could it be changed to something like:
Loops movie playback <number> times. 0 means forever, and should be used to keep (for example) streaming radio connected.
I don't have a git repository of mplayer, otherwise I would send a diff.
