The most recent update of MPlayer for openSuse 10.3/i586 appears to have 
broken support for realplayer streams. Prior to updating shortly after July 
11th I could capture and dump real audio streams; after the update it no 
longer worked.

After the update, it is trying to use libNemesi for rtsp:// streams, however 
this does not currently talk the protocol required for real audio rtsp:// 
streams. I have had to re-compile from source enabling live555 support to 
regain the ability to play and dump real audio rtsp:// streams.

What was MPlayer using for real audio rtsp:// streams prior to the 11th? The 
reason I ask is because I did not have live555 installed on my system 
previously, yet it worked until the latest update.

Could you please modify the package for 10.3 to include live555 support?

In case you aren't aware, live555 is installable from Yast and by default 
installs in /usr/lib/live (including all dev headers and files). To enable it 
with MPlayer I had to use ./configure --with-extraincdir=/usr/lib/live.
