    Since you and I have both used a modern version of MPlayer and the same syntax I suspect that you have a network problem rather than an MPlayer/stream problem. (As my own efforts were completely successful).

    As for the -bandwidth option the man pages simply say that it allows faster cache filling and stream dumping by setting a maximum delivery bandwidth. From a practical point of view it certainly allows very fast download of some streams.

    Andrew,

    You are probably right about the network problem. I am shortly to move to a different provider so I shall try again then and see whether it improves.

    Many thanks for your help in sorting this.

    Andrew,

    For infor: - further to my last post, I've just tried the original syntax you suggested on my laptop after a clean installation of the latest mplayer and it downloaded fully - all 58 mins very quickly!
    Previously this laptop didn't have mplayer installed so I must conclude it must be something to do with the repo mplayer or something else I've installed on my other pc.

    At least I know now!

    Good to hear you have some success . The repository MPlayer is more than a little dated, although I have not heard too many reports of dropped streams. Should be much more interesting when Karmic Koala arrives as it is bringing with it a much more modern MPlayer. I plan on sticking with the svn MPlayer myself, once you start with it you pretty much get hooked .

    Well I suppose it all depends what you need it for...but I would tend to agree. Now that I know how to get and use the latest, there's not much reason to go back to an older version.......

    Features like VDPAU and other enhancements are onlyu implemented in the latest mplayer and not the one in the repo.

    Hi,

    I have added a section that deals with installing the opencore-amr libraries so that once again the svn MPlayer in this guide can play amr/3gp files. Please let me know if there are any problems with the new section.

    Hmmmm.... looks like it is still very much early days for libopencore-amr . I notice that there have been some major changes in the git repository over the last little while. Are you happy to try the newer version? Delete the old version and try the following:

    Code:
    $ git clone --depth=1 git://opencore-amr.git.sourceforge.net/gitroot/opencore-amr 
    $ cd opencore-amr
    $ ./configure
    $ make
    $ sudo checkinstall --fstrans=no --install=yes --pakdir "$HOME/Desktop" \
    --maintainer "$USER" --pkgname="opencore-amr" --pkgversion "0.1.2" \
    --backup=no --deldoc=yes --deldesc=yes --delspec=yes --gzman --default
    $ make clean
    This also worked on my system but MPlayer had trouble finding the amrwb libraries.

    Thanks for your trouble,

    Andrew

    Edit:
    Hmmm..... are you using a 64bit installation?

    If having contined issues you should then build these off of the included debian rules (or edit CXXFLAGS in makefiles, easier to do a .debs

    This is just a quick look, will review after work

    To do so just cd to the opencore-amr dir

    Before building go into opencore-amr/amrnb and opencore-amr/amrwb folders.
    There will be a makefile in each, you need to edit line 13 and remove /local

    Ex.
    orig. just remove what's in red
    # Just set OC_BASE to the opencore root, or set AMR_BASE directly to
    # a detached gsm_amr directory
    OC_BASE = ../opencore
    AMR_BASE = $(OC_BASE)/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr

    # To compile as C instead of C++, define BUILD_AS_C
    ifneq (, $(BUILD_AS_C))
    CXX = $(CC)
    CXXFLAGS += -x c -std=c99
    endif

    ifeq (, $(PREFIX))
    PREFIX = /usr/local
    Do that for both makefiles, save and then at the /opencore-amr prompt run for 32 bit
    Code:
    fakeroot debian/rules binary
    For 64 bit or slightly better for 32 also
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install devscripts
    Then at the /opencore-amr prompt run
    Code:
    debuild -us -uc
    above command produces screen

    Haven't had a chance to try a 64 bit install, if fPIC is needed then debuild will use with no further makefile edits than described.
    From build log
    make[1]: Entering directory `/home/doug/Desktop/arm5/opencore-amr'
    make -C amrnb BUILD_AS_C=1
    make[2]: Entering directory `/home/doug/Desktop/arm5/opencore-amr/amrnb'
    cc -Wall -g -fPIC -DPIC -O2 -x c -std=c99 -I../oscl -I../opencore/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr/amr_nb/dec/src -I../opencore/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr/amr_nb/common/include -I../opencore/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr/amr_nb/dec/include -I../opencore/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr/common/dec/include -I../opencore/codecs_v2/audio/gsm_amr/amr_nb/enc/src -c -o wrapper.o wrapper.cpp
    ect.,ect.
