Hello and good morning.
Martin could you please send me your test program to have a look at your
structure? I;ve built something under Java, but I am also a bit confused
with the mplayer behaviour.

I've tried this. My test_program wrote "pause" to stdout every 5 seconds.
I expected mplayer to play first 5 seconds of "somefile.mpg", then to halt
5 seconds, then to play 5 seconds of "somefile.mpg" again.

Unfortunately, this was not what happened: mplayer kept playing and paused
once (after 23 seconds).

I retried this with "seek 10 type=2" and then "seek 30 type=2". Thus, first
(after initial wait to let mplayer start and cashe the mpg) jump to the
position of 10 seconds. Again, after a little wait, jump to position af 30

This test failed as well. I've checked the documentation and the bug
but I could not find any hints. I'm quite sure of my test_program (tested
with another proggy which took data from stdin and wrote this to a file: all
was well). So, where is the error? Do I expect something of MPEG2 files
it cannot or is something wrong with mplayer?
