[MPlayer-users] real video over rtsp

Now I'm curious! To answer your previous question, I used midentify on
the dumped file, that's what gave me the 179 seconds. So it sounds
like I've got the same problem. This is interesting, because I've been
trying to dump a 93 minute file which starts, then closes the
connection at various points. The URL on it is:
I wouldn't think the Windows Media stuff would have anything in common
with Realmedia, but I wonder. The main differences with the above URL
is that it stops at totally random points and midentify does give the
correct length of the file.

I didn't use -v for this, but I think it's basically the same, right?

I've never been sure of that either, but I've seen it a lot. Usually
it doesn't cause me problems, but who knows? I'm thinking that either
there's some crazy new protocol or else there's been a recent change
to MPlayer's network support. And since I've got versions of MPlayer
going back quite awhile on backup CDs, and none of them work on these
streams, maybe some providers are using some new variation? I don't
really know, just guessing. I know that using the http streaming
patch, I only get audio from the stream I was trying to dump!
Hope that made some sense, frankly I'm totally confused!
