Just one thing with that feature, take care not to over the length of you
video, mplayer doesn't like that.
One nice "feature" is that sending "bye" closes the mplayer instance. The
only thing I couldn't get to work is using broadcast messages from pd, to
control several instances of mplayer with one udpsend, so I used one udp
port for each mplayer instance.
