For Linux users wanting to watching without using browser + flash, using mplayer + rtmpdump:

  rtmpdump -v -r rtmp://livestfslivefs.fplive.net/livestfslive-live/ -y "aljazeera_en_veryhigh?videoId=747084146001&lineUpId=&pubId=665003303001&playerId=751182905001&affiliateId=" -W "http://admin.brightcove.com/viewer/us1. -p "http://english.aljazeera.net/watch_now/ -a "aljazeeraflashlive-live?videoId=747084146001&lineUpId=&pubId=665003303001&playerId=751182905001&affiliateId=" | mplayer -

^ Works with vlc too.

just pulled rtmpdump from macports (I already have mplayer, of course) and I can confirm it works on mac too... except their rtmp provider seems to be getting killed right now.

I would recommend switching to Livestation, quality isn't as good, but at least it works (on Linux too).

It works fine on my linux box. Is there anyway to adjust the screensize to full-screen?

Look in /etc/mplayer/input.conf for the keybindings.


The default binding is 'f', iirc.
