Description

Search any of the free video offerings on tv-video.net and it seems to throw mplayer into a loop that it never returns from. The real player plugin seems to handle it fine though.

this url is one of the free episodes:
http://vip.tv-video.net/index/play.php?urlid=11448&movid=643&num=4&sip=2&pid=0&check=0d258513dfedffe9c92fce3bef7ea91c

the html contains a link to:

http://vip.tv-video.net/index/smil.php?lookid=6569977&movid=643&playid=1&urlid=11448&dsn=2&sip=2&smv=c0c04a1285d665ac673527d022e8bb12

which in turn has a url with a bunch of spaces in front and behind of it:

http://server2.tv-video.net/rm/dad/dad3/dad304.rm?D41D8CD98F00B204000TFlag=1218658346&RPIN=F8054D114B6CD4F704F63B91EFEF8116

which comes up as 302 to an error.jpg file

E:\temp>wget "http://server2.tv-video.net/rm/dad/dad3/dad304.rm?D41D8CD98F00B204000TFlag=12186583

maybe mplayer could spit out a better error message...

The odd thing is that real player can parse that link somehow and start playing. I've tried the same thing before using the wget command to download the link. It never seems to download anything useful. I know it's streaming but shouldn't the stream be download able also?

  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed, patriotact@gmail.com

this bugreport is invalid until someone gives us a url that , when put into realplayer, starts playing a video. and mplayer playing the same url cant play said video.

Any of the url's under this "free" section will play in real player but not in mplayer http://vip.tv-video.net/index.php?newkey=serch&mod=freeshows&classid=0&page=0&orderby=movid&keyword=0&type=lookpoint

Just click on the show twice and then select the US or Europe server.

this works: mplayer -playlist "http://vip.tv-video.net/index.php?mod=geturl&sid=2&urlid=21803&smv=9ae56e1990da894bf78eaa5f2cc0b7eb"

just gotta sniff the right url :)

comment:7 Changed 8 years ago by compn

oops, btw it requires this in config:
user-agent=RMA/1.0

dumb user-agent checks...

comment:8 Changed 8 years ago by compn

btw sorry this took me so long to figure out. glad you stuck with it! :)

steps required:

install realplayer
get login from bugmenot.com
sniff successful playback, look at useragent
right click video , click 'play in realplayer'
go to 'edit clip info' in realplayer
copy video url
mplayer -playlist videourl

Hey thanks! No problem. Real player in linux is kind of flaky so I was always looking for another way to play these links.
