Setting timer length in Mplayer
I tried searching the forum for mplayer time but coudn't see anything that looked relevant. I also went to the Mplayer development site but I couldn't see anything that matched. I have a two hour recorded video I am playing with Mplayer in PuppyLucid 5.2.5. The timer bar at the bottom of the video seems to have a 15minute maximum but the video plays past that. However, if I want to fast forward past 15 minutes, say to 35 minutes, I can't. Moving the timer bar takes me back to the beginning of the video. I've looked in mplayer.conf and in the preferences but I can't see anything that will let me adjust the timer bar to one hour or two hours etc. Anyone have any ideas?
It's an old recording that I had that I've played in several different recorders in Windows with no problem. I use Puppy a lot and wondered if it had a video player - saw Mplayer and decided to try it. It worked great except for the timer. I tried a couple of other newer recordings that were an hour long and had same problem. So its something with Mplayer and from what you say it sounds like it has nothing to do with configuration/setup but rather Mplayer not reading a file header properly. Not sure what can be done about that. The file is a .ts stream file from a PVR box. There is a corresponding .idx file so I'm not sure what file Mplayer is having the problem with.
