I wonder why I don't get any sound yet the file gives sound when played
> File still not found.
Just to be clear on what I did. One ASX file I have looks like this:
<ASX version = "3.0">
<TITLE>Charlie Rose - </TITLE>
<AUTHOR>MythTV - MythWeb</AUTHOR>
<REF HREF = "http://192.168.1.111:80/mythweb/pl/stream/1091/1215759600" />
I put "http://192.168.1.111:80/mythweb/pl/stream/1091/1215759600" into
Firefox and it offered me the option of saving it, which I did. The
strange thing to me is that it saved it as an .mpg file, which was easy
What I am thinking from this and the error messages from MP is that myth
is taking the request
redirecting it to the .mpg file. The players we have tried, MP and
WinAmp don't like the redirection. WinAmp, for example, automatically
inserts a file extension at the end of the url, which clearly will not
work. Too bad as WinAmp otherwise does exactly what we want.

While I would like to get sound as you do, ultimately I would prefer to
have a larger screen of the correct aspect ratio so I am very interested
in knowing what solution you find, and of course, helping in the search.
