Works for me, although I've yet to test CVS HEAD. I was going to do so
yesterday, but a failed PSU fan put paid to that. (The PSU has been replaced
now and that computer is up and running again; thoughts on the viability of
replacing the fan in the old one, anybody?)

You could try using the xine-1_0 branch (as of yesterday - a lot of stuff has
been merged from HEAD today, ready for 1.0.1). You'll need to change the
plugin version number in the patch fom 16 to 15 (look for PLUGIN_INPUT);
memory says that there should be one reject and that it's trivially fixable.

If it's the only item in the playlist then clicking on the 'play' button
should be sufficient (with gxine, it is); other than that, I doubt it -
you've hit end-of-stream :-)
