Since I have no simple way to upload a file, I tried to find
a file with this effect on your server. And I found that they
_all_ fail _completely_ to play the video when they are played
like "cat foo.mpg|mplayer -". However, they play fine with
"mplayer - <foo.mpg". Check Alien.mpg just as an example. I
think the problem is that pipes are not seekable.
