Does anyone know whether it's possible to put the ABC Australia
broadband streams into mythstream. They have a page at
http://www.abc.net.au/broadband/default.htm which has on demand news,
sport and business, but I can't work out how to determine what URL to
put into streams.res. If anyone has already done this or knows how to,
could you please share it?

Also, the instructions at the link given above talk abuot using real
player and ethereal. Does this assume that real and ethereal are on
the same box? I have real on a windows PC and could put ethereal on my
linux internet gateway - would that allow me to find the real rtsp://
URLs for real content?
