Thank you very much for your response Kevin. I'm cross posting this to the
mplayer development mailing list, in order to ask the good people over there:
- what are some of the technical issues involved in dealing with mms stream seeking?
- and specifically, how may one attempt to modify the mplayer source code in order
to add such support?
I'm cross posting to the mplayer-users list, because I'm also curious about possible
alternative ways to accomplish this (mms stream seeking.)
I hope this cross posting isn't inappropriate. Otherwise, please let me know.
Thank you so much.
