Have you tried to play mms streams with mplayer and the CLI?

See the man page.

mms streams are blocked at the firewall so I cannot test.

Using the arrow keys, you may be able to move forward and backward.
Again, see the man page for instructions.

Thank, Robin. mPlayer is my preferred player and I did try to use it.
This is the output:

It seems as though it cannot find the server, however Windows Media
Player 11 in VMWare loads and displays that video just fine. There is
no AU sniffing at the server, I checked that with the university's
computer department.
