I made it work replacing mms:// with mmst://, and removing the query
If you keep the mms:// protocol string, MPlayer will try with ASF/HTTP
protocol, and then it hangs waiting for cache to fill up (or waits for
a looong timeout). I still have to check why it hangs there (if
connection fails, it should exit). It makes no difference if you keep
or remove the ?key= part.
If you change the protocol to mmst://, MPlayer will be forced to use
ASF/TCP, but you have to remove the ?key= part, else the connection
fails with a "file not found" message. Looks like the server takes
the ?key as part of the file name.
If usually mmst:// servers can't process query strings in urls, MPlayer
should remove them. Can anyone verify this?
What kind of protocol does asfrecorder use? AFAIK it uses only HTTP, so
there's probably a bug in MPlayer ASDF/HTTP implementation. If someone
has a better knowledge on asfrecorder please speak up.
