Hmmm... (o) -> :-) [egg on face :)] Sorry for being a little quick on the 
draw... Erm, just been watching one of those US-military-type films, y' see, 
um, can't think of any better excuse right now :o)

Definitely an omission in the ASX parsing... I'm a bit rusty on the C, and I'm 
totally unfamiliar with the MPlayer architecture, but my attention is drawn 
to somewhere in the region of asxparser.c:516 as looking like a possible 
candidate for tweaking, as it looks like the HREF is being extracted from the 
parsed data structure and then opened.

Now tell me I'm totally wrong ;-)
