Media resource locator
A media resource locator (MRL) is a URI used to uniquely identify and locate a multimedia resource. It is used by the VideoLAN and Xine media players, as well as by the Java Media Framework (JMF) API.
VLC, for example, supports the following MRLs:
- dvd://[<device>][@<raw device>][@[<title>][,[<chapter>][,<angle>]]]
- http://<server address>[:<server port>]/[<file>]
- rtsp://<server address>[:<server port>]/<stream name>
Several media players also support Video4Linux as v4l:// and v4l2://.
