Ok, got it running on Vista and Mono on openSUSE.  It doesn't work with rtmp,
at least yet.  Still work to do there, but the rest of the stuff is working
fine.  I don't know which change fixed it but I used a pictureBox for the
video window and the following code:

mediaPlayer = new Process();

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.CreateNoWindow = true;

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.UseShellExecute = false;

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.ErrorDialog = false;

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.RedirectStandardOutput = true;

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.RedirectStandardInput = true;

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.RedirectStandardError = true;

int hWin = videoPanel.Handle.ToInt32();

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.Arguments = string.Format("-slave -quiet -idle
-fixed-vo -wid {0} {1}", hWin, theURL);

mediaPlayer.StartInfo.FileName = "mplayer";

mediaPlayer.OutputDataReceived += HandleMediaPlayerOutputDataReceived;

mediaPlayer.ErrorDataReceived += HandleMediaPlayerErrorDataReceived;


mediaWriter = mediaPlayer.StandardInput;

mediaWriter.AutoFlush = true;




Thanks for all your help and advice.  It's running now in live and on-demand
mode as a .dll.   Now, if I could only do the same with VLC!!  ;-)
