RTSP doesn't 'require' that audio and video get sent in separate streams -
that happens only if the RTSP server chooses to do this. RTSP/RTP sessions
can also be sent in a single, multiplexed stream.
It's quite likely that the LIVE.COM RTSP/RTP support can be made to play
these streams (if it can't already). (It's possible, though, that the
VideoLAN server is not standards-compliant in some way.) Could you please
re-run MPlayer with the "-V" option, i.e.,
mplayer -V rtsp://<whatever>
and send me the output?
(I'm assuming, of course, that you're using the "latest CVS snapshot"
version of MPlayer - not the 0.90 version (for which the RTSP/RTP code
doesn't work properly).)
