Like flyingdurchman said. (+1)
And for the lazy ones, they might try my VHS (using ffmpeg/ffplay) so one can just 'throw' (multiple) files at the script and it plays (or encodes) them all in a row.
It is meant for mass-encodings; playing (audio/video) files/urls is just an additional gimmick.
To upstream (from your stream server):
Likewise for streams, it even has a playlist for remote streams:
1. use for stream play:
2. use to play that url again: (select from list)
Obviously, you need to adjust the URL/IP to the proper adress.
See my signature for the link.
Please be aware, i were reported an error breaking the installation, but I cannot reproduce it.
If you try VHS, it would be kind to let me know wether you get an error as well or not.
And if you do, please provide the full output of
V=1 ./configure --prefix=/usr;make;sudo make install
to report that installation bug.
Hope this helps (and thank you in advance)
