There are three areas in the <player> section of the MythStream player.xml
file that control mplayer - <system> which defines the player itself
<custom> which defines the command line switches, one of which is -slave.
This is used for the final section <command>, as MythStream puts mplayer
into slave mode and commands are sent to the player through stdin.
See http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/tech/slave.txt for the definitions of the
commands that mplayer can execute - I've no idea (without looking at the
code) which commands MythStream actually makes use of apart from the
commands already in the xml file - or how the keybinding are assigned.
The only changes I've ever made was to the cache size, but that was before
I found out why my ADSL link was so slow!!
