MediaPlayer settings - if "automatically start playing" is unchecked MP will not start streaming. MP should acquire the stream and start playing when the "Play" button is activated in this case.

A General System Error occurs with MediaPlayer under the following circumstance:

MediaPlayer->Settings...->Play mode->Automatically start playing (checked) Open network stream Quit MediaPlayer Launch MediaPlayer from the Applications menu The file " could not be opened, Error: General system error (attached screenshot1.png)

The same error can be invoked by playing any audio file Quit MediaPlayer Move the previously played file from its former location MediaPlayer tries to automatically play it, can't find it, and gives a General System Error

Using the new "Radio" app by Fishpond. Since it relies on the streaming feature, I'll post bugs here until instructed otherwise Two crashes while switching stations Debug reports attached

I hope that is the right place.

Well, I am unable to play a stream url with MediaPlayer using the command line [1]

With local files is quite easy:

~> MediaPlayer /path/to/mediafile/media.mp4

If I attempt to do the same with a video url, eg:

~> MediaPlayer http://url/to/mediafile/media.mp4

Nothing will happen: I have to open MediaPlayer, click on "Open network stream" and manually insert the URL in "Stream URL", but I'd wish to achieve this from the command line (and so using a shell script)

Possibly related to comment 1: Try playing a local file, then File > Open network stream... . MediaPlayer will never start playing the stream.

I'll try this with the console open later.
