I'll second all of that - its nearly there but due to the stability issues
I often fall back to MythStream.
Since ffmpeg can handle RealPlayer streams now (e.g. BBC radio programs)
then the addition of that codec would be of special interest to me (some
of the BBC music doco's are really good!), although the number of streams
available there does benefit from the parser method of scraping the BBC
