Request: name change of command line switch

Hi,

I was wondering if the following command line switch can be changed:

-xineramascreen --> -xs (or maybe just add -xs, so there's two switches 
doing the same thing?)

The change would be very helpful for users with a multihead environment; 
= much less typing.

Thanks,
Thoralf

outdated snapshot

Currently, while getting a Subversion snapshot, in the MPlayer download
page (https://www1.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html), results in a tarball
dated May 7, 2015 (mplayer-checkout-07-05-2015), with SVN revision number
37391!

I think Suversion trunk is, as today, in revision 37420. So, is that the
expected behavior? And if so, is there any particular reason for this?

Thank you in advance...

Using network protocols without global network initialization. Please use avformat_network_init()

I know it comes from libavformat/network.c, but what does that mean?

flac playback fails for files from one source

Hi, I've uploaded a file break-a-spell.flac and break-a-spell.txt to 
ftp.mplayerhq.hu/incoming.

The flac file fails to play on mplayer but plays with vlc and tests out 
ok with the flac program.

flac files that I've ripped myself play ok in mplayer and other players.

I'm happy to supply any other details or run further tests.

Details from break-a-spell.txt follow.

Problem with playing audio/video tracks

I use SMPlayer v. 14.9.0 (svn r0UNKNOWN) running on Linux (FC21) to play 
audio and video.
The configured preferred player is mplayer-1.1-33.20150211svn.fc21.x86_64

When I play a track and while it is playing, I enable the Extra Stereo 
Filter.
Audio does not change (i.e, the enhanced stereo separation is not audible).
I stop the track and I re-play it from start.
I get an error banner The details of the error log says:

BBC Streaming Audio Appears to be back.

	I just tested the very same streaming audio link

http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/bbcradio1.pls

that had gone missing since May 8 in this part of the United
states and it plus all the other BBC feeds that also vanished
are back again.

	Whatever the problem was is not in any way related to
mplayer. I did absolutely nothing to fix anything and the feeds
were all free of any streams as late as May 19 so something got
fixed between here and there at least for the time being.

BBC Streaming Audio; They've Done it Again.

	In February, the BBC shut down all the Windows media
streams and appeared to replace them with mpeg3 feeds that
worked fine in mplayer. No problem.

	With every so many gallons of bath water poured out, the
temptation to include a baby or two is irresistible and they
have given in to that temptation with another tweak which no
longer seems to work under mplayer.

	The link in question is:

http://www.radiofeeds.co.uk/bbcradio1.pls

There are similar links for the other radio services which also
broke the same way.

	This ultimately resolves to another server as seen below.
	If you try to play it now with mplayer, it appears that
mplayer is unable to receive the stream.

Objectionable yadif haloing with certain top crop parameters

tl;dr:  "mplayer -vf yadif" produces terrible results when an even but
non-multiple-of-4 number of scanlines are cropped off the top.  It is
only the -top crop-, not whether the total number of scanlines is a
multiple of 4.  It happens regardless of whether the input is mpeg2
(with mplayer doing the cropping) or H264 (with Handbrake doing the
cropping as part of the transcoding process and no cropping arg
supplied to mplayer).  VLC displays the same behavior.  I can't
seem to find a prior report of this behavior anywhere.

Details:

I'm starting with NTSC SD interlaced recordings from Hauppage PVR-250
capture cards.  If I crop 0 or 4 lines off the top using "-vf crop="
(e.g., to avoid line-21 closed-captioning data) and use yadif, it
looks fine.  If I crop 2 or 6 lines off the top, it looks terrible.

If I transcode using Handbrake to H264 in an MKV container, either
with the output as a progressive file (but no deinterlacing filters
applied), or as an MBAFF (--encopts:tff, because mediainfo reports
that output from these cards is always top field first), then the
output also looks bad using "mplayer -vf yadif" if I have cropped 2 or
6 lines from the top, but it's okay if I've cropped 0 or 4 lines from
the top.  (If I'm cropping 2 or 6 lines, and also telling Handbrake to
produce interlaced output via MBAFF, I must also tell Handbrake to
crop 2 lines off the bottom so the frame size is a multiple of 4.)
Note that if I'm cropping with Handbrake, I am -not- supplying any
crop argument to mplayer.

In the "bad" case, fast motions, such as a white performer waving
their hands around gesturing or clapping, has very objectionable,
