The web page has an error:  the "websteam link" is to, which has a space on the 
end (%20).  From the page source (ctrl-u in firefox):


So simply clicking on the link, or copy & pasting the link into a 
player won't work.

However, if you copy the link and paste it into a player, then remove 
the trailing "%20", the link should work fine.  I was able to play the 
link in:  kaffeine, xmms, and from the command line, mplayer ("mplayer"), and xine ("xine")
