Hi VDR Team

I'm using the VDR MPlayer plugin (vdr-plugin-mplayer 0.9.15-12), from
the Etch vdr-experimental repository at e-tobi.net.
I've been trying to find a way to play online video streams directly,
but haven't found a way to do so without modifying the 
/usr/share/vdr-plugin-mplayer/mplayer script.
If I save the source url in a '.pls' file, the 'readable file' test
in the script fails, because the extracted "FILE" is not a local file.
However, if I disable the readable check for online sources, it works.
Is this something You have considered?
As far as I can see, the read check was added specifically in the
deb version of the script.
I've attached a simple patch that works for me. Please feel free to
include it directly or in a modified version.

Cheers, Jonas
