This stream plays properly with a player that uses the Realplayer 
version 8.0 libraries:


But when Mplayer 1.0-pre7 attempts it, here is what I get:

Connected to server:
Cache fill:  0.00% (0 bytes)    input_pnm: got message from server while 
reading stream:
You need to obtain a new player to play this clip. Please point your web 
browser to and download the latest RealOne Player 
from RealNetworks. Once you have installed it you should try this clip 
Cache fill:  0.00% (0 bytes)

I gather the stream knows who is trying to access it and objects to 
non-Realplayer clients. If so, that sucks.
