"Да, насчет "серьезного" использования MPlayer - у него есть серьезный недостаток - он не умеет показывать и писать одновременно, а использовать в параллели запущенные MPlayer и MEncoder для этих целей, IMHO, не лучший вариант." - Spectr

I believe Mplayer is working good for us and it is an active and well-maintained project. We base our AJAX camerea interface on the Mplaer plugin and I see no reasons to switch to something different.

As for requirement to view and record - I don't think it is needed and even very useful - normally all the full frame rate/full resolution video should be recorded (possibly on a different computer) but only some data should go on screen realtime (reduced resolution, window, frame rate). On the other hand we may need to have simplier recorder than mplayer - just to record the stream without any re-coding, but use less resources and better handle long files and multiple streams. --Andrey.filippov 18:09, 23 November 2005 (CST)

I using streamers "khlut" and "landy" in multicast mode. With URL rtsp://camera:7070 - many copy`s of mplayer working in parallel mode, and normaly using parallel Mplayer and Mencoder

Victor, nobody (incl. Spectr) was denying that it is possible to use mpalyer with mencoder at the same time. Spectr just does not like that mplayer can not record the stream on it's own, I think - it is not needed. --Andrey.filippov 22:59, 23 November 2005 (CST)

I am sorry for my inattention :-( --Victor 23:52, 23 November 2005 (CST)

mplayer has 'mencoder' that is easily pipeable for that purpose. I use it to rip internet streams all the time. Siraf 17:12, 28 January 2008 (CST)

I just downloaded the latest mplayer source and it seems like:

#define MAX_RTP_FRAME_SIZE 5000000

is already defined in the latest revisions --OneArtPlease 07:58, 20 November 2008 (CST)

Yes, they did finally pushed this in the last CVS :) --Alexandre.Poltorak 08:01, 20 November 2008 (CST)
