    Cool No longer able to play RTSP/WMA stream with Saucy

    I used to be able to use VLC to play streaming links like http://www.blueletterbible.org/audio...en/w/W3001.asx

    As you will see it downloads an ASX file which I used to be able to double click on to play the streaming media. If you actually download the above file, you'd see that it's just a wrapper for streamed audio via rtsp/wma

    <ASX Version = "3.0">
    <ENTRY>
    <TITLE>Genesis 1</TITLE>
    <REF HREF = "rtsp://stream.blueletterbible.org/courson_jon/Gen/W3001.wma" />
    <AUTHOR>Jon Courson</AUTHOR>
    </ENTRY>
    </ASX>

    In older versions of Ubuntu, I could play the asx file & could paste the above URL into the open network stream in VLC and successfully listen to the stream.

    Now since I've upgraded to Ubuntu 13.10 where the medibuntu package is no longer maintained, I cannot listen on VLC, Totem, or any other player for that matter. If I open VLC from the terminal I get the following report:[0xb5307248] live555 demux error: Broken packet detected (300 vs 0 or 300 + 628 vs 631)

    Can anyone help?

    Vlc probably has something broken or different with live555, see same errors here with vlc 2.1.1 & your link.
    However it plays ok in mplayer (using a month old or so mplayer), has a few warnings but works
    mplayer rtsp://stream.blueletterbible.org/courson_jon/Gen/W3001.wma

    thanks for your reply - this may be an alternate mplayer issue but this is my output after fixing the ip6 issue

    Probably just the repo versions of mplayer are old & use an old libav libraires

    here I have a newer version that uses FFmpeg (internal), though for the build didn't enable live555 thru liblivemedia

    I solved this issue - unsure what the problem is with VLC but was able to get mplayer working by changing the rtsp:// in the above link to mms:// and it works like a charm
