I'm trying to register my own protocol in the player, cause I would like to pass as arguments to the player something like "[my_protocol_name]://[my_stream_id]". I inserted information about my new protocol in the files avio.h and file.c (my protocol behavior is grouped with pipe and file protocols behavior), but I can't understand in what place the player choose if get data from a file or from "pipe" or "http" etc.

i guess this belongs to ffmpeg-user, but a short tip, check
You dont need to modify ffmpeg's code to add your own protocols, it can
be done nicely with the existing interface.
