If you are running Fedora or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, you can watch the raw feed from Al Jazeera using this script:
rtmpdump -v -r rtmp://livestfslivefs.fplive.net/livestfslive-live/ -y “aljazeera_en_veryhigh” -a “aljazeeraflashlive-live” -o -| mplayer –
Save the preceding into a file called for example, aljazeera.sh and change the permissions to x (chmod +x aljazeera.sh) and then you can run it as ./aljazeera.sh
Does not work:

WARNING: HandShake: client signature does not match!
ERROR: rtmp server sent error
ERROR: rtmp server requested close
Not sure why. Something is blocking via a proxy perhaps? Works for me in the office and at home.
[…] Unfiltered feed from Al Jazeera […]
I don’t think I need the enterprise version to run that script ;] I’m better off with Gentoo Linux.
Good for you. I have both Fedora and RHEL and hence the note in the post.
