mplayer supports udp multicast rtp video streams as generated by mpeg4ip.
these streams use little .sdp files with information on the stream, mplayer can then play
the stream as follows:
you could possibly easily add support for this feature to mplayer plugin
by doing something like this:
mplayer plugin downloads this file to /tmp/
mplayer plugin then executes mplayer sdp:///tmp/webcam.sdp
WARNING: these will not work:
Can I do this?
If so then I'll just identify sdp as a streaming protocol and be done with it.
no, you cant, these sdp files are distributed by http:// or ftp:// or by someone with a floppy disk
then played locally
sdp:// itself is no transport protocol I think, it only tells mplayer it's about to read an sdp file
VLC handles http:// urls for it too
