Usually amarok, xmms, alsaplayer and a few others would work
for the kind of streams I am familiar with.

That's a weird one indeed, for a start there is a space char at the
end of the URL on their page and with or without it does not return
what I would expect from a typical stream that I am used to. If the
URL does not return some mime.type then I'm not sure how you can
get anything to work with it on any playform...
