After having done some more investigations the streams can be played
with a combination of firefox mplayerplug-in and mplayer. By running
firefox in debug mode you can get the url of the stream which can then
be player direct in mplayer.
The site doesnt host any of the streams, it just links to other sites.
I presume then that mythstreamtv could well be used to play them.
