I am now able to get this working :). But, I noticed that streaming a recording
does not work when VFAT = yes in the configuration of vdradmin.  What I did was
recompile VDR with VFAT=1 to remove the invalid DOS characters.  Then, using
Samba, I mapped the shared VDR Recording directory to Windows (using Z:\).
Next, I put "Z:\" in the "Path to VDR's recording directories on the
Workstation" in the configuration settings for vdradmin.  Finally, I wrote a bat
file on windows like this and associated it:

--SNIP--

mplayer -aid 0 -playlist %1
pause

--SNIP--

The only problem is that VDRAdmin does not stream recordings when VFAT is set to
true in the vdradmind.conf.  It still works when set to false, but I am unsure
if that will cause other issues. :)

Best Regards,
C.
