Hi everybody,

I installed mplayer to read video from a multicast
network using the following command line :

mplayer rtp://

But I didn't manage to do it, just look at the errors

Stream not seekable!

Well in fact I don't understand why it can't find the
stream because it is really brcadcasted onto the
network ( when I try to read the video frome my hard
drive there is no problem )

Thanks for your help
