Well, for starters, I think the "license problem" would be a major issue in 
trying to do this.  But apart from that, Windows Media streaming uses its 
own proprietory protocol (mms).  So someone would have to implement that 
before you could do anything else.

As far as I know, there are no unix programs at all that can do anything 
with Windows Media apart from decode it, and I doubt there's anyone 
interested in developing any.
