You'll need the "latest CVS snapshot" version of MPlayer, *not* v0.90.

>  Ps. Which files from live.com are used?

For playing RealAudio and/or RealVideo RTSP streams, the LIVE.COM code is 
not used at all (and so, it's not needed).  However, there are many other 
RTSP streams out there that don't use RealAudio and RealVideo, and you'll 
need the LIVE.COM code to play those (see <http://www.live.com/mplayer/>).
