...well, when trying to play the URL itself I get "Couldn't resolve name
for AF_INET6:"-type errors, and then an indefinite hang
with no visible network activity. When I grab the ASF file itself (via
wget) and look inside, all it contains are two reference URLs - which
both point to the exact same ASF file I already have. Unless you know of
someone who's managed to play the stream with some other program, I'd be
inclined to guess offhand that the stream itself could be considered
