Oops - you're right. And *that's* your problem! The IP address in a
"rtsp://" URL must be a *unicast* IP address - the IP address of the
server. Note that RTSP uses TCP, which is why it needs to use a unicast

I suspect that it *doesn't* use RTSP. If not, then you'll need to create a
SDP file, and use MPlayer's "sdp://" pseudo-url - i.e.
The SDP file should look something like the following:
s=Test MPEG-2 TS session
m=video 1234 RTP/AVP 33
c=IN IP4 22.214.171.124/255
Note the "33", which is the static RTP payload format for MPEG-2 Transport
Streams, "126.96.36.199", which is the session's multicast address, and "1234"
which is the session's (multicast) port number.
I hope this works.
