If you know where to get your video, you may like Miro
Pros & Cons:
Miro will not only do live streams but also RSS. It makes heavy use of your hard drive and Internet bandwidth because it wants to download everything to your hard drive, TIVO style. The program guide is preloaded, but there is very little network content. If you know where to get your video, you may like Miro. Advisory: Miro is bundled with OpenCandy. More information here.
