Sometimes even mplayer cannot play dumped stream without specifying the
substream with -vid. It does work for http://vipmms.itele.fr/cpi_itele,
but doesn't work for http://video.corbina.tv/tv2 and couple others.
Unfortunately, corbina.tv filters out some traffic, so most will not be

stream that confuse mplayer.

at all. When mplayer attempts to play dumped stream ASF check fails with

ASF_check: not ASF guid

And then mplayer start guessing, wrongly detects TiVo file format and


P.S. I have mplayer 1.0pre6-3.3.5 that is just 2 weeks old
