Notes on playing the Ogg Vorbis+Theora stream (of course) follow.
On Fedora Core 5 GNU/Linux on i386 (actually, a dual-CPU machine: 2 500MHz
Pentium IIIs with 768MB RAM):
Helix Player: works fine and plays well for long periods of time (I can't
get it to stop playing well).
Totem: freezes after about a second (seemingly after playing what's in its
buffer, but I could be wrong here). I see the first frame, but no other
frames of video. I hear about 1 second of audio.
Xine: plays well like Helix Player.
mplayer: I had no problems with mplayer.

For me VLC froze after a while, but Helix Player keeps on playing. There
are player-centric problems but they have nothing to do with your feed.

Hope this helps.
