I'm running Netscape 4.04 (I can't run anything else for complicated reasons.. don't ask) and I'm trying to set up it's helper applications (Prefs. -> Navigator -> Applications). These are basically the settings in the mailcap file, MAPI types mapped out to programs that Netscape can use to open the file type.
I'm trying to add mp3 support by adding audio/mpeg with a filename extension of .mp3. This part works properly and opens any command I insert. However, when I insert "~/mpg123 -", Netscape won't plug in the file via stdin. Instead, I must use "~/mpg123 %s", which makes it necessary for netscape to dl the entire mp3 before calling mpg123! I looked for other variables other then %s, but information is very sparse. I found using echo instead of mpg123 that %u returns the location of the file, but netscape still insists on dling the entire file just to return the path!!
Does anyone know how to force Netscape not to dl the file and instead only pass on the path, or else, stream the file as it is dling to the stdin of the prog called?
