	ASX parser NOT YET IMPLEMENTED !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

asx support is in CVS version, but your are not very lucky it also don't
work with CVS version. mplayer identifie it as an asx but it's a normal asf file.
You can download it with an http client and then view it, or use
 wget -O - http://aljazeera.net/mritems/streams/video/2002/1/18/1_77105_1_12.asf | ./mplayer -
to wait ;)
