IIRC from the last time I was using WinAmp, the *NTV sessions* channels 
(and several others) were being streamed over NSV using the VP6 codec. 
I've been trying (in vain, I fear) to find something *not on windows* 
that will play NSV streams.  Xine at least can play the audio
component of the stream--no video though.

At any given time there are 130-140 streams going according to the
winamp media browser, and most of them are in pretty good demand.
