Can't ask more than that, can we? Good pointer, tnx.

Yes, and consists 80% of (very terse) stuff about digital media that I
don't understand. Well, you never learn anything if you don't read
and re-read stuff you don't understand, do you?
Your post is so full of useful bits that I'm pasting it into my local
mplayer manpage -- stuff picked out of the very long mplayer(1) and
 It might be worthy of note that I have my own mann command that
looks up manpage-like docs that I've created myself, fetched from
the net or assembled from list posts and the like. It works in
parallel with the canonical man(1) and re-acquaints me with arcana
that I've figured out once but forgotten. If I can just remember
to *write stuff down* and put cross-references to mnemonic key
words in the see-also file, it works a charm.
