comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for that @DarthAndroid - of course I have, among the first things :) Doesn't work - the linked Slitaz post confirms that loading 'nvidia' driver for X11 was what solved the issue; but on my system, radeon.ko.gz is loaded, and X11 doesn't accept it in its setup; which is why I'm looking at this workaround (which actually works - for those pipes that don't segfault with avi as in OP edit)... Basically, I just want to use vlc as audio player and video demuxer/decoder - and ffplay as basically just a "projection screen" :) Cheers!

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for the comment @Breakthrough - tried it now, but doesn't work, and probably it shouldn't (note that --rawvid-chroma is option for "Raw video demuxer" == "player"; however here VLC plays "OGV", not "raw video") .. that is why the chroma should have been fixed with vcodec=IYUV in the very first attempt, but for some reason isn't. Cheers!

comment Pipe VLC output to ffplay?
Thanks for the comment, @slhck - the video is linked in the post (it's from Wikimedia Commons). Actually, both vlc and ffplay can play this file fine - the question is about what format to choose, so one pipes decoded output from vlc into ffplay... Cheers!

comment How can I pipe output of ffmpeg to ffplay?
In my man ffplay, I cannot see ffplay supporting the -i switch - is it maybe ffmpeg only?

comment Hanging on “Scanning for Harddisk partitions and creating /etc/fstab” when trying to install Damn Small Linux
Many thanks for this - I have a PC with a broken harddrive, which prevents most bootable USB from booting during this stage; now, with this, DSL boots for me! :) Cheers!

@Jay - so what is then used, instead of quartz crystals, for timing in PCs?

comment How can I provide a SSH password to SVN on the command line?
@briealeida - I just wish it worked: according to the test in my post below, it seems it does not work, as a password prompt appears anyways; the same post contains a solution with sshpass (which does work for me).
