in most cases the HTTP one is ok, the exception seems to be at least
some versions of realplayer.

o v10 (windows?) is ok with HTTP, my v8 (unix) isn't.  Maybe if we can
get feedback from other users who have experienced problems playback
problems. The key things are which player/version and entry in access

Initially though it maybe just v8 of realplayer, Chris can you send me
the user agent (access.log) string for v10.

it's not the sort of thing a compilation flag will be useful with, it
may require special casing of the user agent field.

I made kh44 special case real, but I don't know the user agent strings
yet, your wget should be ok now as the default is HTTP.
