I have run into an issue running mplayer (Sherpya-SVN-429280-4.5.0) on Vista.
If, from a terminal window on the Vista machine I run
The movie plays great.
If, I run
It takes minutes for the movie to start playing, but it does eventually start
playing. (The movie file is about 30 MB. If I use a smaller file the delay is less.)
I get an occasional error message prior to the playback starting indicating that
the connection has timed out.
If, from an XP machine running the same mplayer executable, I run
The playback starts almost immediately, there appears to be some progressive down loading happening behind the scenes. Works great.
Also if I put movie.mp4 on the IIS server on my XP machine and access it locally,
(mplayer http://localhost/movie.mp4), it works fine.
Has anyone else run into this behavior? If so, what did you do to fix it?
