Default trouble playing streaming video

I'm having trouble accessing streaming video from a local website. If I
click on a video in iceweasel (up-to-date Lenny), I see that MPlayer-Plugin
is called, and the browser also shows:

Connecting to server 70.61.148.132[70.61.148.132]: 80...

ps shows the following process:

mplayer -wid 0x1201a26 -vf scale=640:-3 -osdlevel 1 -nojoystick
-noconsolecontrols -cookies -softvol -slave -user-agent NSPlayer
-nomouseinput -cache 512 http://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf

After a couple of minutes, the browser declares:

No stream found to handle url http://70.61.148.132:80/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf

I also tried using mplayer directly:

mplayer http://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf -dumpstream -dumpfile output.asf

This gives more informative errors, namely lots of the following:

Playing http://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf.
Resolving 70.61.148.132 for AF_INET6...
Couldn't resolve name for AF_INET6: 70.61.148.132
Connecting to server 70.61.148.132[70.61.148.132]: 80...
Cache size set to 320 KBytes

and eventually the same "No stream found ..." shown above.

I called the content provider, who said these are aimed at Windows Media
Player and that they have been dealing with recent changes to WMP. If I
paste the URL into Explorer, it brings up WMP and plays OK. Videos from this
site worked fine with Etch mplayer about a year ago. The provider said that
I could try VLC, but I haven't yet.

Does the "No stream found" mean that mplayer can't play the new format, or is
it really a problem finding a stream at all? Any ideas how to get this
working from Lenny? Thanks.

Mmm, try with this:

***
mplayer -wid 0x1201a26 -vf scale=640:-3 -osdlevel 1 -nojoystick
-noconsolecontrols -cookies -softvol -slave -user-agent NSPlayer
-nomouseinput -cache 512
mms://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf
***

Note the use of "mms://" protocol instead "http://" one.

Thanks, but that didn't work either. Unlike the first command, that one did
seem to get as far as trying playback:

Playing mms://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf.
STREAM_ASF, URL: mms://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf

Connecting to server 70.61.148.132[70.61.148.132]: 1755...

...

However, I then got lots of errors, some of which follow:

[MGA] Couldn't open: /dev/mga_vid
[VO_TDFXFB] Can't open /dev/fb0: No such file or directory.

X11 error: BadGC (invalid GC parameter)
X11 error: BadDrawable (invalid Pixmap or Window parameter)

Some of these seem to be from mplayer. I'm not sure about the "X11 errors",
of which there were thousands.

I get the video playing with portable SMPlayer on a windows box, which
uses MPlayer as backend :-?

Ugh, that seems an error coming from... Xorg server? Dunno what can be
cause of this error :-?

Have you tried to load the video with another media player? Just for
testing purposes...

Just Windows (XP) Explorer. It plays fine with that.

I, too, get exactly these errors. But I do get it playing without the
options:

mplayer mms://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf

So you could try to find out which option causes the problem.

Well, aside that :-)

I meant, VideoLAN, libxine or Totem/Kaffeine with the required plugins.

As I reported, that connected but displayed "X11 errors" instead of video. I
did hear sound. However, I have now succeeded with:

mplayer mms://70.61.148.132/WXOD/WCT%2018120.WMV?MSWMExt=.asf -dumpstream -dumpfile output.asf

In my original post, I had failed with the http version of this command. I
just found that the above mms command generates some errors but does save the
stream to an ASF file. Mplayer plays the saved file correctly.

Yes, I can reproduce that. I now find that just eliminating the first
option (-wid 0x1201a26), and also switching http to mms, is sufficient to
have it play. I guess this must be a problem with MPlayer-Plugin.

Thanks to both of you.
