[MPlayer-users] unable to play Real Audio stream

My apologies if this is a really dumb question.
I appear to be unable to play http://woub.org/radio/woublive.ram with
MPlayer Sherpya-SVN-r58803-4.2.2 (with MPUI 1.2-pre3 build 38).
This contains rtsp://media.woub.org/qtencoder/woubfmlive.sdp?title="WOUB-FM
Live!"&author="WOUB Radio - woub.org"&copyright="2005 Ohio University"
The MPlayer output seems to suggest that it is being confused by the spaces
in the query strings:
Playing rtsp://media.woub.org/qtencoder/woubfmlive.sdp?title=WOUB-FM.
Resolving media.woub.org for AF_INET...

I guess this may be a malformed/nonstandard rtsp URL, but Real Player is
able to play this OK.
Any suggestions as to how I can work around this?
