This should be a very elementary question. I have a URL like http://SERVERNAME/file.wmv. When I enter it in "Open Location" in gnome-mpLayer it connects to the server and plays the stream. But when I run
in the terminal I get a crazy endless loop of
Playing URL. Resolving SERVERNAME for AF_INET6... Couldn't resolve name for AF_INET6: SERVERNAME Resolving SERVERNAME for AF_INET... Connecting to server SERVERNAME[xxx.xx.xxx.xx]: 80... Cache size set to 320 KBytes
I think my usage of mplayer in the terminal is correct, since I can watch other URL's. It's only this specific one that doesn't work (I am not authorized to write the URL because they want it to be private!!!).
So my question is: Does anyone know why I get this loop? Or is it possible to see how mplayer is called by gnome-mplayer and what output messages it generates?
I use gnome-mplayer 0.9.9.2 and mplayer 1.0rc4-4.4.5 on Ubuntu 10.10.
