Mplayer should parse .ram files to extract the real audio stream

The BBC (bbc.co.uk) makes its media available as real audio files.
Unfortunately, these aren't strightforward links, but text files containing the
link. mplayer doesn't currently handle these correctly.
The .ram format is similar to .m3u, and is explained here:
rjn@mocha rjn]$ mplayer offtheshelf5.ram
rjn@mocha rjn]$ cat offtheshelf5.ram
[rjn@mocha rjn]$ mplayer rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/worldservice/offtheshelf5_v8.ra
-> Works great!
I'm using mplayer-1.0-0.pre5.2plf
Sorry, I had to guess the component.
Thanks a lot
