I just finished updating and pushing mplayer-resume-1.6 into the tree.  I’ve actually been sitting on the update for a long time, just never got around to releasing it.

There has only been a small change — the script will check mplayer’s exit code to see if it died on something.  I added it since I hit a bug on my frontend where some files wouldn’t resume, and it would delete my resume point anyway.  Kind of annoying.  This update fixes that, and really, that’s it.

    hi, ive just tried mplayer-resume – The thing is, I’m in an office with slow and unreliable bandwith, and im trying to download internet broadcast, but mplayer keeps on bailnig out before shes done.

    Unfortunately, mplayer resume also cant help me here. It starts downloading alright, but when the connection drops – or whatever – it wont retry like i hoped it would.

    $php mplayer-resume -dumpfile ~/transitbelgrado.asf -dumpstream mms://
    mplayer: could not connect to socket
    mplayer: No such file or directory
