I am trying desperatly to view streams from the internet with MPLAYER 
(0.92- But how I try, I just don't get it done.
Playing files doesn´t give anyproblems. I have all Win32 codecs, Real, 
Xanim etc. It's on a Mandrake 9.1 wiht 2.21 kernel (see further in 
mail). As far as I can see I have all SW and HW. Mplayer does contact 
the server but then nothing happens.

It is about the for example the following link:

Playing the link gives the following output:

pieter at amd pieter]$ mplayer -v

'config.h' and 'config.mak' contain your configuration options.
Note: If you alter theses files (for instance CFLAGS) MPlayer may no longer
      compile *** DO NOT REPORT BUGS if you tweak these files ***

'make' will now compile MPlayer and 'make install' will install it.
Note: On non-Linux systems you might need to use 'gmake' instead of 'make'.

Please check mtrr settings at /proc/mtrr (see DOCS/video.html#mtrr)

Check configure.log if you wonder why an autodetection failed (check whether
the development headers/packages are installed).

If you suspect a bug, please read DOCS/bugreports.html.
