I get pretty much the same thing. MPlayer dev-SVN-r18673-3.3 on Mac  
OS X 10.4.6. I noticed an interesting little thing, just about a  
second and a half before the stream stopped:

And if it was JUST a problem with MPlayer speaking MMS or something  
like that, I might say "yeah, that's probably it." However, just on a  
hunch, I ran the URL through VLC (0.8.2). Exact same problem. It spat  
back this error, though:

access_mms: reinitialization needed --> unsupported

So, I ran the MMS stream through MPlayer with the -v option.

Can anyone get this playing in ANY media player? Preferably one that  
will give us some verbose output to compare.
