MPlayer won't play BBC streams

MPlayer refuses to play BBC RealPlayer? streams, but they work correctly in RealPlayer? 11. I've installed the binary codecs from the website as per the instructions, and even linked in the RealPlayer? codecs to the codecs folder (/usr/lib/codecs) but to no avail.

Below is the output from MPlayer:

libnemesi is incompatible with realrtsp (libnemesi disables the internal rtsp code, that is needed by realrtsp).
Recompile without libnemesi (configure --disable-nemesi) if you need realrtsp support (you can use live555 is you also need standard rtsp support).

Thanks for your comments. My MPlayer is the one built by the Livna repository so I've asked them to disable it (or provide a build that doesn't use it).

Is it possible that future MPlayer versions could support falling back to realrtsp if libnemesi failed?
