[MPlayer-users] whole list of streams that won't play

If you go to http://www.defjam.com/jarule/site/music/vid-panel.las# 
(which is a slightly funny looking page) and attempt to play any of the 
streams they all fail.  This is using

MPlayer dev-CVS-030806-14:50-3.2.2
mplayerplug-in 0.80
redhat 9
LIVE support compiled in.

They seem to fail for different reasons.  The .ram files fail because 
mplayer can't seem to work out that they are text files :)   An example 
.ram file contains 
I can't see any way to play that from the command line successfully as 
whatever I guess is the correct URL mplayer simply tells me its not a 
recognised type.

The .wax files fail for some reason I don't understand but it is 
probably similar. The .wax files are also text files that contain more 
info and an mms:// address. That address then fails if you attempt to 
play it by hand by just sitting at the "Caching" stage.

The .mov files also fail and I have no idea why.  I managed to dig 
around and find http://www.islanddefjam.com/www2/av/qt.mov which needs 
faad. Unfortunately, I have installed a faad2 rpm but configure tells me 
it can't find the version number and won't include it. What should I do?

What would be really great is if you could play these files by simply 
clicking on their links in any case.

Any help very much appreciated.
