 I got a data feed containing a video using tcpflow
(circlemud.org/~jelson/software/tcpflow/), but even though mplayer
seems to notice it as a video "libavformat file format detected" and
it acts as if it were to play it, it gives me the following error
 How can you fix it?
# mplayer ./test00.mpeg
MPlayer SVN-r29142-4.3.3 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team
