I'm trying to use Firebug to get the stream URL of this site, so I can play it using VLC. Does anyone know how to? Thanks.
I encourage you to use their website, as you probably get the service for free thanks to their adverts.

A full list of URL's can be found in the xml file:
Anyhow, my VLC doesn't seem to connect whilst Totem works perfectly fine, and I can download the stream as well.
