OOO OOOO my computer seems perfectly capable of encoding
OOO OOOO and playing at the same time.
OOO O so ideally, i'd like to setup a tivo-like
OOO O operation, where i can pause and fastforward
OOOO O live tv.
OOOOOO this seems as easy as running mencoder and
OO OOO O mplayer at the same time.
OO OOO O
OO OO this doesn't work, however, as mplayer can't
OO O seem to handle the fact that it's playfile grows
OO O as it's being played.
OOO is there any way to circumvent this problem? a
OOOO O switch perhaps, that tells mplayer to recheck
O OO OO the length of the file once it reaches the end?
O OO O or a streaming mode?
O OO OO
O OO O
OOOO O thanks.
OOOOO O K.
