Question Mplayer gets stuck when playing online WMV

Hi all, My Mplayer always gets stuck when I'm trying to play online WMV files, and the more interesting thing is that they all stop at the same buffering position(18%). Anyone get some idea about what's going on there? Thanks a lot.

KERNEL: 2.6.15-gentoo-4
Mplayer: dev-CVS-060217-10:46-3.4.3
