I have this MJPEG stream. When I open it with VLC or with Chrome, it works perfectly, and in both cases the stream starts instantly (or atleast within one second). However, with MPlayer, I get this message about 1000 times: Cache not filling, consider increasing -cache and/or -cache-min! ... and then, years later, I might get a stream.
With OpenCV and its captureFromFile, it times out on the analyze duration, but then I get an erratic and lagged stream.
What makes VLC and Chrome succeed here, while MPlayer and OpenCV fail horribly? I tried running VLC with -v, but there is no telling what it does from that.
