[MPlayer-users] rtp multicast bind() problem

We are experiencing problems while trying to open the same rtp
stream delivered in multicast with more than one mplayer instance.
The first mplayer instance launched works fine, while all the other
instances fail to bind the socket (we have launched mplayer with strace
to determinate that).
Bind fails because all the mplayer instances try to bind to the same
multicast address and port, and only one instance is authorized to do that.
How can we solve this problem? Could eventually adding a setsockopt
with SO_REUSEADDR argument help in some way? Anyone has ever
experienced similar problems and can suggest which file we have to edit
Thanks in advance
