Hi there,
Some web sites features links to streamed content as a RAM file, such
as: http://www.tv-radio.com/ondemand/france_inter/HISTOIRE/HISTOIRE20050526.ram
This kind of file is in fact just a link to a RTSP stream, like:
My question is: am I the only one who is quite annoyed by the fact
that MPlayer doesn't follow the link in the RAM file?
An easy work-around would be something such as (untested):

wget $1;
mplayer `cat $1`;

But somehow I'd prefer if that wasn't necessary...

What do you guys think?
