MST3K - streaming online.
Downside it is not at the best resolution for TV viewing (YOUTUBE and
GOOGLE VIDEO have often better quality recordings).
It certainly is not as good for viewing as watching the DVD's (buy the
DVD's and help feed our beloved talented gang).

It is great for having a quick MST3K fix if you're not picky on which
episode you watch and if you want the same feeling of enjoying really
low-resolution color broadcast TV (low bitrate video, pretty decent audio
recordings).

============

Downloaded and installed WINAMP v5.6 last night (it's been a long while
since I had WINAMP on my PC since they churned out a buggy ass release about
5 years back). I've been using MEDIA PLAYER CLASSIC HOME CINEMA 1.4.2499.0
up to this point for video and audio and the K-Lite codec pack and never
looked back to WINAMP after they were purchased by the AOL-failzone.

Downloaded the SHOUTCAST TV plugin, installed it.

Checked the SHOUTCAST TV listings, top listing a MST3K channel.
I did it as a lark and am very happy with having a 24/7 MST3K channel.

Biggest problem I've found is that if you "View File Info..." for video
files (doesn't happen with audio-only streams) then the damned WINAMP locks
up solid, but you can close and restart it and be going good again in a
blink.

I also downloaded STREAMRIPPER for WINAMP and am expanding my Halloween
and Christmas playlist for my MP3 player.

By the way, if you check the listings you will notice a "Bat Channel"
(Batman 1960's hokey live action version).
