(mc, samba, mplayer) delete 2 first chars in an argument


in .mc/bindings i write

open=(mplayer %d/%p >/dev/null 2>&1 &)
and it works fine untill i want to watch a film from unmounted samba because "%d/%f" returns something like "/#smb://computer-pc/video/file.avi", but mplayer needs "smb://computer-pc/video/film.avi".

So what must i write in .mc/bindings to return proper file-path, i.e. delete "/#" in a path returned by "%d/%p"

you may want to try this:

open=(mplayer $(echo %d/%p | sed s/"#\/"//) >/dev/null 2>&1 &;)

this will remove the first '#/' if it's there...
