actually it isn't a codec problem but a possible bug or more probably an
incompatibility of the mms server and mplayer's mms client implementation.
as the mms:// code is unmaintained (it was ported from xine(??) once long
time ago, and never worked properly).
the crash is happening in the asf demuxer, due to seriously broken stream.
as no one of us is familiar with teh mms:// protocol 9actually it's a secret
- reverse engineered by some volunteers buti've never seen any docs, just
the asfrecorder code).
maybe try to download teh stream using asfrecorder, and check if the
resulting file is playable with mplayer. if it is, then we have some chance
to fix it (by comparing mplayer and asfrecorder code).
