This stream, is a multi-part wmv. When I play it in WMP, first there is a 7
second clip with a logo and silence and then the player is redirected to the
main clip.

In mplayer the initial 7 second clip is understood partially ( no video )
and then it quits without being forwarded to the main clip.

I tried it with the precompiled version : MPlayer 1.0rc1-4.1.1
and then I downloaded and built from the svn and I got the same result.
