No, because then it also handle 'rtl2'/'rtlII', whatever word the
Bible contains.
What if ARD-FS changes it's name to 'Das Erste' [note the blank] ?
Yu simply cannot have a case of reading the mind of some stupid
content 'designer' to know what he/she will call the dir/file.

So the simple workaround would be just to use seperate arguments and 
have mplayer buffer a bit and read from stdin, no ?


(or am I missing some strange hyphens/other chars in that URI ?)
