Description

There is a video website that makes mplayer enter en infinite loop.

This is under fedora 7, livna rpm: mplayer-1.0-0.84.rc2.lvn7

Here are the commands and their results
1) mplayer http://www.radio-canada.ca/medianet/2008/CBFT/telejournal200803042200.asx
just exits not playing anything

2)mplayer -playlist http://www.radio-canada.ca/medianet/2008/CBFT/telejournal200803042200.asx
This enters an infinite loop where it keeps reopening
http://ms.radio-canada.ca/2008/medianet/CBFT/Telejournal200803042200.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf

Finally the only command that plays the file is
3)mplayer mmshttp://ms.radio-canada.ca/2008/medianet/CBFT/Telejournal200803042200.wmv?MSWMExt=.asf
Note the use of mmshttp: instead of http:, and the use of the link from the loop (not the initial link)

Command 2) used to work on older version of mplayer (I have another machine with
mplayer-1.0-0.73.20070325svn where that command works fine) but it does not anymore with current versions.

It would be great if command 1) would work (so that the movie could even work inside a web browser) or at least command 2) would work again.

Thanks

r25962 still has the problem, but i think its fixed in latest svn.

comment:2 Changed 12 years ago by compn

nevermind, still affects
MPlayer dev-SVN-r26046-3.3

You can "fix" it by just adding to you config file
user-agent=NSPlayer/4.1.0.3856

comment:4 Changed 12 years ago by compn

what was the reason that useragent wasnt made as default again?

comment:5 Changed 12 years ago by reimar

That user agent is just plain wrong for us, we are not Windows-Media-Player and I don't think we should pretend so by default.
