OK. Wasn't sure if anyone had written any video codecs. I'll have to see about VLC. I know it can play Windows Media streams and I'm pretty sure it will handle QuickTime too...
Heh.. now that I think about it. MPlay supports URL streaming via the command-line (DUH!), but the same MPEG-1/2 limitation applies.
Have you tried TVersity? It will transcode for you, and would make the configured URLs available for playback in MPlay.
