Rip MP3 and windows media streams from the command line
Authored by: LC on Dec 23, '04 09:21:58PM
I use this method to save RTSP files locally. MPlayerOSX2 tends to play these files without a problem ... I believe it's because a few months back I copied some decoders to /usr/local/lib/mplayer. If I rename that directory, then MPlayer won't play RM files.

I recall on my other system, there was a symlink (under /usr/bin) to mplayer, not sure where it came from or whether I created it some time. Anyway, in this particular hint, if someone doesn't know how to locate the binary, here is the pathname you can try --

/Applications/MPlayer\ OS\ X\ 2.app/Contents/Resources/mplayer.app/Contents/MacOS/mplayer,

Note, there are 3 escaped space characters in "MPlayer OS X 2"; There's no real linefeed in the pathname above ... Larry.

Oops, I got bitten by the stripslashes again ... there are three backslash characters in the pathname above (preceding each whitespace character) and I should have doubled them, after the posting preview they disappeared. No comma at the end of the line either (my goof) Larry.
