After trying Xine y Totem I was advice to give the chance to Mplayer, I just want to watch video streams like http://www.freedom-tv.net/freedom.m3u

works fine for me. you just need to play the file as a playlist, nota media file itself, so us the -playlist option. or more directly, play: "mplayer http://67.19.60.34:2343"
