Build: SVN-r5788
System: Ubuntu 11.04

On the Configuration -> TV Adapters -> Services page: Clicking any of the Play links does nothing (browser problem). The channels are viewable via the links on the Configuration -> Channels page.

I copied the RTSP URL to mplayer, and got the following:

$ mplayer rtsp://
MPlayer 1.0rc4-4.5.2 (C) 2000-2010 MPlayer Team
mplayer: could not connect to socket
mplayer: No such file or directory
Failed to open LIRC support. You will not be able to use your remote control.
