I'm using Livna's mplayer-1.0-0.76.20070612svn.lvn7.x86_64 RPM and have run into a problem playing streams from Sirius' website.

Copying the URL onto the commandline, I found that it's actually a playlist and MPlayer is not properly recognizing the playlist unless the "-playlist" switch is also passed on the commandline.

Below is the playlist as passed (by URL) from Sirius' website:

<ASX Version="3.0">
<ref href="
<ref href="mms://

This problem is still present for me. The above URL returns a playlist and I can play it fine with vlc, but mplayer refuses to deal with it unless I add -playlist before the URL on the command line. This is with the current mplayer as distributed with Linux Mint 8 Helena - x64 edition.
