Talking anyone can decode this URL address?


hi there, chanellege for plugin programmer

i've been always having trouble to play this link in linux using mplayer + mplayer plugin (plugger 5, mozplugger, or mplayer-plugin):

http://pshweb02.881903.com/framework...&menuID=1&ch=2

(or just click here )


so...tonight, i happened to go back to the XP land (because i need to listen something from this link), and guess what i just discovered.... even RealOne (for XP) can't even decode this link, and.... lets try winamp, still can't decode!!!!

so, i fire up win media player 9 (like i normally do), copy this link and it appear to me "only" win media player can play this link.


so.... what's so special about media player, allow me to play link like this? when other applications won't allow me to do so.

is it media player problem? or its the website problem (maybe the site only allow media player???)


i don't know how many sites are like this out there, but it'll be a big step for us to move forward, if we can decode URL links like this

from the looks of it, the link just links to a jsp script that takes the input and sends back a windows media player (.wms) file, i think real cant play that kinda file if i remmeber right (well its one of formats that only windows media player play, i dono, but do you have the windows codecs for mplayer so it can read the file?

yea my mplayer is fully loaded with every options (well..except lirc)
anyway, its not codec problem i can tell you that. when you try to run the stupid link using mplayer, it won't be able to decode :gateway:

you can welcome to copy that link and try it yourself, i think this site is purposely hiding the link behind the URL.... which makes it challenging if we can decode it
