I think I'm having the same problem, I have downloaded a ASF stream
(mms://media-event.online.no/bb_dircut_a_high) and am unable to play it in
mplayer. Did you get any help you could share, or does anybody else know
how to play this stream?

Here's the verbose output I get when trying to play a asfrecorded file from
this site:

% mplayer -v /Film/Stream/bb_dircut_a_high
