The codec RV10 is not the latest but the oldest (read it as 1.0)
So it is supported very well by realplayer libs and ffmpeg.

The problem probably is related to the pnm protocol that mplayer
doesn't support very well, but I could be wrong.

More expert people on the list can help you with your problem.

In the mean time you can watch the video with realplayer for linux too.
