And because this, I was thinking to build a OS independant Python GUI which replace the "Browser" and open directly a streaming channel.Have you checked the Xulrunner? It's is available for all three relevant (packaged for Debian of course) and might make a fine GUI which could even be loaded (and updated) from a remote site. Songbird and Spicebird are some examples of what could be done. https://developer.mozilla.org/en/XULRunner
I believe Joost used XULRunner as the base for their program to view TV programs over the Net (not as a continuous stream though, you selected a single episode at a time). I haven't looked at them in a while but checking now, they've moved away from that to a website based solution using Flash, however it does show that it is a feasible platform to build that on.
