  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

This is a known problem: MPlayer doesn't do a true authentication for pnm://
streams, but cheats sending a fixed string. This doesn't work with newer servers.

Usually you can play the stream by replacing pnm:// with rtsp:// (it works with
the url you posted).

This 'bug' won't be fixed unless somebody reverses the pnm authentication, I'm
considering adding an automatic fallback to rtsp.
