we see this is a playlist (a file which refers to another source).
you would think about using the -playlist option.
However the server in playlist is 192.168.XXX.XX
which is odd.
for more info you can see
RFC 1918 (rfc1918) - Address Allocation for Private Internets
next I did a packet capture without the playlist option using ethereal.
mplayer connects once and retrieves the playlist.
mime type returned was video/x-ms-asf
data is 82 bytes and same playlist as with wget.
Then mplayer connects again (same server/same file)
using new user agent NSPlayer and some pragma options.
server returns 200 OK with pragma features="seekable"
and 3 packets (one 1368 bytes of data other 905 and 172 bytes of data)
in data we can see it is a windows media 9 stream header.
96 K bits
44 Khz (Stereo)
(A/V) 1 pass CBR
We connect again to (Same server a third time/ same path)
pragma now playstrm=1
we get in return same set of packets as before (same size).
it doesnt continue past this point to my knowledge
