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.
