As I recall, I had the same problem and discovered I needed to create  
a new, identical player (by script), and delete the old player, every  
time I needed the player to play an rtsp url. Then the "start player"  
command would work fine. Before creating the new player, of course,  
the script should keep track of all the relevant information about  
the previous player (rect, borders, alwaysbuffer, showController,  
etc.) so it can seamlessly create a new player without the user  
seeing what is happening.

Yes... this is a workaround for a bug.
