The norwegian broadcast corporation (NRK) sends their row of best TV programs friday night. It is more than a year ago that I discovered how to watch their web tv with msdl, and the habit is now well established. I found out lately that VLC also plays the mms:// stream, but as you know, a cli-app is irreplaceable. Sadly their current web tv will be replaced with flash in the near future. While the new flash solution is hailed on their forums, all I think is what to do now.
