I am helping some user of Slimserver/AlienBBC which uses mplayer to provide
RealAudio support. 3 separate user seems to have the same fault and it is
mplayer related.  In all cases users are able to play BBC through
RealPlayer but not through mplayer.  Mplayer has been tested on other
streams and it plays OK.

Can any OSX 10.4.9 Intel Mac user of Mplayer 1.0rc1 test the following
command lines.
mplayer -cache 128 rtsp://live.media.rai.it/broadcast/radiouno.rm
mplayer -cache 128 -playlist

Typical log is as follows - mplayer hangs waiting for data.

$ ./mplayer -cache 128 rtsp://live.media.rai.it/broadcast/radiouno.rm
