&Watching streaming live video in Linux

I came across this one-line command to watch Al-Jazeera English natively in Linux. It uses rtmpdump to connect to the RTMP video stream server and then pipes the output to mplayer. I was so delighted at how well this worked on my low-power computer. It usually struggles to play video which is contained in a flash container and now I could bypass flash! So, I spent some time with google and wireshark (a packet analyzer) and created one-liners for as many live RTMP streams as I could find.

These are the feeds I found
