Hi.

I'm trying to get the mplayer plugin working.  Am I correct - mplayer
uses the mpegpes vo option to feed the played stream into a PES stream,
which VDR then plays??
I've vompiled mplayer to support dvb output :
mplayer -vo help | grep mpegpes
        mpegpes Mpeg-PES to DVB card


Problem is when I execute 'mplayer -vo mpegpes "file"' I get :
Opening /dev/dvb/adapter0/video0+audio0
DVB VIDEO DEVICE: : No such file or directory
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

---and VDR crashes with no logs of why

udev isn't creating video0+audio0 :
ls /dev/dvb/adapter0/ -la
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     140 Aug 19 11:11 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root      60 Aug 19 10:49 ..
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 4 Aug 19 10:49 demux0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 5 Aug 19 10:49 dvr0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 3 Aug 19 10:49 frontend0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 7 Aug 19 10:49 net0


So I added video0+audio0

ls /dev/dvb/adapter0/ -la
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  2 root root     140 Aug 19 11:11 .
drwxr-xr-x  3 root root      60 Aug 19 10:49 ..
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 4 Aug 19 10:49 demux0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 5 Aug 19 10:49 dvr0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 3 Aug 19 10:49 frontend0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 7 Aug 19 10:49 net0
crw-rw----  1 root video 212, 1 Aug 19 11:11 video0+audio0


but still get :
Opening /dev/dvb/adapter0/video0+audio0
DVB VIDEO DEVICE: : No such file or directory
Error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device.

---and VDR still crashes with no logs of why

I also tried adding 'video0' and 'audio0' on their own but get the same
results.

Any ideas?
