Don't use the "rtp://" support - it's crap, and only works with MPEG-1 or 2 
audio/video RTP streams anyway.  Instead, build MPlayer to use the 
"LIVE.COM Streaming Media" libraries, and play your stream from a SDP file 
(using "sdp://"), or from a "rtsp://" URL.  This will give a much more 
robust RTP implementation.
