It hangs earlier than codec init. It still have to start receiving file 
There are at least two errors: the fist is the failure in estabilishing 
the rtsp session, the second is that MPlayer should quit with an error 
instead of waiting forever to fill the cache.

It's probably not a codec issue. MPlayer uses only Realplayer codecs, 
not demuxers or network libraries.

I'm asking you to test it in xine because real rtsp was ported from 
xine, and i have no way to test it on a big endian architecture. If it 
fails there too, then it's not an error during the port.
