Mozilla and wget are HTTP clients, they don't unterstand RTSP, which is 
Real's protocol.

The realplayer error message could mean that the stream is encoded with some newer codec that isn't available in RP8.

The link worked for me with the Real One Linux beta. Google for it, I don't have an URL ready and it is impossible to find by browsing Real's website.
