Hi, using either one of the options worked great!

I used the input redirection method (<).
I went to use the "cat" command method a few minutes ago and it says the
MPlayer 1.1-4.8 (C) 2000-2012 MPlayer Team
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote
Reading from stdin...
libavformat version 54.20.4 (external)
Mismatching header version 54.20.3
Cannot seek backward in linear streams!
Anyway, since the video can now be played, I will consider my problem
solved. If you need more info to improve the autodetection (logs, etc.),
feel free to ask.
Thanks for the help.
