Whenever I play an avi with mplayer-plugin, it gets downloaded to my homedir. There's nothing wrong with playback, everything still works, but I wonder why the file is in my homedir. :S I also have to remove the file manually.
Could it have something to do with caching?
I'm also having problems with some streams. They say 'buffering' and then it just stops. When I look into my homedir, sure enough there's a file named playlist (because it's a stream) but it doesn't play.
Try setting "keep-downloaded=0" in /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf.
That worked. Thanks.
