Hi,

I'm trying to set up a media streaming server and I found Apple's Darwin Streaming Server appears to be useful. However, I am now having problems with connecting to the server with MPlayer. Here's the error messages:

(The above is Mac OS X, but GNU/Linux is just the same)

However Apple's QuickTime player appears to work well when I am using the same URL.

Not sure how to solve this. I've tried to search in Google but haven't found a solution yet.

Thanks
