Error while parsing chunk header. Mplayer error only under Slack


Hi all,
I get the "Error while parsing chunk header" message using Mplayer under Slack when attempting to play ANY streaming media from the net. Under Mdk this does not seem to be a problem.
I have googled, yahooed and asked jeeves for help on this but without any posotive results so I thought I would ask the experts on the forums here (nice bit of creeping there!)
I have the very latest version -MPlayer-1.0pre5- which was compiled with the --enable-gl switch, and completed without error. I also all the latest codecs, which I installed prior to compiling MPlayer, as per the install instructions, so now I don't know what else to try.
Does anyone have any ideas?

TIA

It would help if you gave more of the output of MPlayer, the command you use to run it and the address of the file you're trying to play. There are many bugs and many reasons for them; without details it's often impossible to guess what's wrong.

Are you really sure that you're running 1.0pre5? If you had an older version installed and the new one ended up in a different directory, you might be running the old one inadvertently. If you installed on top of a previous installation, it might have mixed things up.

Is the working MPlayer the same version?

There has been at least one known bug with asf and asx files. It can be circumvented with the -playlist option. Either gmplayer -playlist http://address.to.some/file or:

MPlayer's homepage has a searchable mailing list archive.

Found a temporary solution, by using the Mdk executable instead of the one I compiled, (had to install the lirc package though), then everything is now working as I expected, so obviously I need to have a much closer look at the compile time options to figure out what's going on.
Or, by wgetting the offending links, and retrieveing the real url, then I can open them from the command line. However, this doesn't help when the real url is buried within a piece of java, so I will try and keep this thread updated when I have found the correct cure for the problem.

im having the same error im trying to get an mms link to play mms://best.live24.gr/best1222 but the strange think about my problem is that sometimes works... dont know how and why but if i try 20-30 times it might work without making any change, (the stream works on my windows box) I installed evrything i found about codecs when i was trying to make mp3 work.. but i think the problem is not on my computer i also tried from an other linux machine that was running ubuntu and i got exactly the same error..

that is what i get
