That's because the LIVE.COM libraries don't yet support the 'seeking'
operations in the RTSP protocol. (This task is on our 'to do' list, but as
it's not yet a funded project, it's low priority.)

MPlayer's A/V synchronization & playback code doesn't always work well when
playing remote (RTSP/RTP) streams, and it sometimes gets confused into
thinking that your computer is 'too slow'. (The reason for this seems to
be that, for streams, the A-V presentation time differences tend to be
larger than for locally-played files, which the MPlayer code was primarily
designed for.) You could try adding the "-mc 10" option; that often
helps. Or else just ignore the message; if your computer isn't really 'too
slow', then the message is nothing more than a minor annoyance.
