No biggie. You must have the Real Player installed, or another compatible player, such as Real Alternative 1.27 (available here).

I am not using Realplayer myself so I cannot tell you exactly. But you should be able to open the url within Realplayer, perhaps from the menu "File" -> "Open" ?

I'm showing my ignorance here, but that's the first time I've noticed anything difference than http:// or ftp: in a URL.

Is rtsp:// just Real Player content? Are there other types of URLs also?

Yep, rtsp:// is the Real Player protocol. Likewise, mms:// is the Microsoft Media Server protocol. Both are used for streaming video/audio content.

RealPlayer is very invasive. A good free alternative is JetAudio, which can also play RealMedia files.
