I can still access the wireless camera, though I can't view the stream. What does "access" mean? Can you still play the stream with any other program? Can you access the stream with a simple wget? What happens if instead of MPlayer you start a wget (either with a size limit or each time killing the old one)? Is there maybe some MPlayer still around that blocks the device? Tried MPlayer with -nocache? Has the camera ever been tested under such conditions? Maybe its http server has a memory leak, causing the device to crash after around 1000 accesses - in particular if MPlayer does not close the HTTP connection the way it expects... > MPlayer SVN-r1.0~rc3+svn20090426-4.4.3 (C) 2000-2009 MPlayer Team This is over a year old, you should try a newer one.
