Hi there,

I've noticed serious problems when trying to play MJPG streams via HTTP, as of 
VLC 0.8.2 final. It seems that VLC refuses to play any MJPG stream.

The relevant portion of the debugging output when playing such a steam is as 

main debug: using access2 odule "access_http"
main debug: pre buffering
access_http error: invalid HTTP reply '--myboundary'
main error: cannot pre fill buffer

You can get such a video stream at:

And remember the specs about mjpg streams:
