Problem playing mms stream

03/11/2008 - 20:31 von George | Report spam
I am using OpenSuse 11.0 and I am not able to play a mms stream from a
radio broadcast over the internet. It plays without any problems from
Windows on the same machine, or from any other machine connected to the
same network. If I use mplayer, I get an error saying "HTTP/1.1 503
Service Unavailable". I have tried using xmms, vlc and others, and all
of them seem to have some problem. It is very frustrating that I can
play this using Windows but not on Linux. I have been trying to find out
what the problem is using Google but so far I had no luck. Is there
anyone here able to help? I will appreciate it.

Many thanks,

George

Do you use a proxy setting with your browser? Then you have to use that
proxy for mplayer, too. Set the environment variable http_proxy.

Additionally, the server may filter clients by browser identification (ok,
that's very unlikely, as mplayer disguises itself as MSIE6.)

(Maybe you like to ask the same question on alt.os.linux.suse, as
alt.linux.suse is a german language newsgroup)

Kind regards
