I have about 7 files I downloaded from youtube using

my versions of youtube-dl and mplayer are:

MPlayer SVN-r37150-4.8.3 (C) 2000-2014 MPlayer Team
$ youtube-dl --version

OS is F20 x86_64

Below is the script that plays the list of these youtube videos:

$ /bin/ls -1 *.mp4 | while read f; do^Jmplayer "$f"^Jdone
bls -1 | while read f; do
mplayer "$f"

======= OK, so where is this 'C' coming from?? It is causing mplayer to 
exit with error
and the whole little script exist.

Here is the list of the YT videos I downloaded using youtube-dl:

Cathedral of the Madeleine Choir performing Ave verum corpus in 
Cathedral of the Madeleine Choir performing Nativitie in Assisi, 
Choir of the Cathedral of the Madeleine performing Versa est in 
Tantum Ergo - Cathedral of the Madeleine - Salt Lake City-u1GdRdKAEXg.mp4
