[MPlayer-users] Real streams via rtsp protocol

Hey ho.

I'm not sure if this is an rtsp or mplayer issue.  I have sent this
same message to live-devel, but thought I'd check here, too.  Let me
know if this is the wrong list.

When I play a ".rm" file, mplayer hangs at the end of the stream (or,
if the stream is small enough, while caching it).  Even "q" for quit
doesn't work -- I have to use control-c to break out of the program.

Here's a sample stream which hangs.  Note: I use -nocache because this
stream is very small -- much smaller than 640K.  

 ./mplayer -nocache -v  rtsp://real.npr.na-central.speedera.net/real.npr.na-central/me/20031205_me_03m1.rm

I downloaded MPlayer-1.0pre2 yesterday, along with the Live.com rtsp
stuff.  If you need more specific information than this, please let me
know what to tell you.

Any ideas what's up?  Where can I find some sample non-realaudio
streams to see if this is really a realaudio issue?  Also, does
everyone else see the same problem with the command up above or is it
just me?

"It has been shown that no man can sit down to write without a very profound
design. Thus to authors in general trouble is spared. A novelist, for example,
need have no care of his moral. It is there -- that is to say, it is somewhere
-- and the moral and the critics can take care of themselves." --E.A. Poe
