Here's a question with a short time fuse.... I would like to watch the
webcast of the rump session of CRYPTO 2005, which starts in about two
hours. The URL they give is rtsp://qtss.id.ucsb.edu/crypto.sdp ; when
I pass it to mplayer, I get this error:
$ mplayer rtsp://qtss.id.ucsb.edu/crypto.sdp

Not a Realmedia rtsp url. Trying standard rtsp protocol.
RTSP support requires the "LIVE.COM Streaming Media" libraries!
Unable to open URL: rtsp://qtss.id.ucsb.edu/crypto.sdp
Realplayer 8 gives a message that struck me as similar in spirit.
So -- is there anything in pkgsrc, or do I need to reboot to that other
i386 operating system to watch?
