Unfortunately you are right. The "nice cache" is a feature of gecko-mediaplayer.
Seems like gecko-mediaplayer (or the frontend "gnome-mplayer", where it bases
on) has an internal cache and so starts to cache the whole video (independent on
video size) and gives nice feedback of progress. This progress view also works
if I pause the video.
MPlayer itself works much better if I increase cache (set to 10MB now) but I
still don't have feedback. If I pause, then I see that mplayer continues to fill
cache by looking to my network switch (flashing LEDs) but not on console or
Would be nice to know how much of the video is already on my side. Is there a
chance to add this feature to MPlayer, so I can follow the progress of video
caching on console?
Thank you very much in advance
