I don't use Ubuntu - SuSE is my main Linux distribution and Fedora my second - but you stream in Linux exactly the same as you do in Windows.

In your browser (Firefox or Konqueror, it doesn't matter which), open your DB web interface . i.e. if your DB IP is 192.268.0.2 go to

http://192.168.0.2/

This will open the web interface, and will present you with your station list. Select the station you want to view, click on the "view" icon and VLC should open up and start playing it.

The only thing you have to make sure of is that VLC is associated with .ts files, but it does this automatically when it is installed

It works just fine for me!

I think you're using the wrong tools!
You don't need any web TV program; all you need are a browser and VLC.

When you install VLC you need to tick some options to associate it with Firefox (or your browser). Try search- there are a few old posts on this and in The Guide.
