[MPlayer-users] How to play old Real stream

Dear all,
I tried to play this Real stream: <pnm://zuul.ncsa.uiuc.edu/arrott2/media/sevrstorm.rmd>
It plays correctly in the standard RealPlayer on Windows, but mplayer refuses to show 
anything in the window (see below the log). This seems due to the fact that I have 
installed the RV9 codecs from the mplayer web page but no RV10 codec. Then I tried to find 
a RV10 codec on the Real website, but it is a maze that never point you to a codec package...
Do you have any idea about what can I do?
