    Hi all! First thanks to the developers.

    My issue may be related directly to mplayer itself, but i am not sure. I wonder if we can listen the online radio stations that use windows streaming media with mplayerplug-in. I can successfully play almost all files on the testing area ( However, on the page of my favorite radio station,, the plug in says "initializing" but nothing happens. Is this because i am doing something wrong or this kind of media is not supported anyway?

    mplayer 1.0pre5.2
    mplayerplug-in 2.70
    Fedora Core 2

      It seems to be both a problem with mplayer and mplayerplug-in. The url of the media is in an odd form and neither mplayer nor mplayerplug-in handle it correct. So until mplayer handles it, mplayerplug-in can't really be fixed.
