Bonjour,

Just go to this web site:

http://lcn.canoe.com/lcn/artsetspectacles/cinema/archives/2007/05/20070507-130213.html

You will see a small camera to start a video. When I click on it, it take really to much time to start the movie (sometime near 4-5 minutes).

Can you explain me why?!?

Thanks a lot and keep your good work!

    I forgot to give you the version of mplayer that I use:

    mplayer: 1.0rc1try2-2.pm.2
    mplayer plugins: 3.40-0.pm.1

    On OpenSuse v10.2

    Thanks for any feedback!

    I have a Windows machine on the same network and the video start in only a few seconds...I don't see any network speed problem here.

    Well it is a streaming video site and so maybe mplayer has a hard time negotiating with that site. I tried running the site just with mplayer directly and it just takes some time to make the connection. The site says to use an mms:// connection and so that is what the plugin uses. The http version of the site does connect faster, but that is not what the site says to use. Windows Media Player must be doing some tricks behind the scenes to make a faster connection.

    Then there's actually no solution? :(

    Closing as it appears to be a combination of the site and mplayer
