I can't offer you any advice on Noatun (it's unusable for me as well) but I
can suggest a couple of alternatives. Neither are in Debian yet, but Intent
to Package (ITP)'s have been filed for both.
Amarok is a very nice music-only player for KDE with some fancy visualizations
and a nice playlist tool. It also has a built-in database of streaming
servers. I didn't file the ITP because I was beaten to it, but I can't find
that person's debs so you can try mine if you want.
Kaffeine is a media player for KDE that's base on Xine, and thus supports
every audio and video format I've ever heard of. It can use MPlayer codecs.
It comes with a konqueror plugin that lets you open an embedded clip in a
full-fledged Kaffeine window, if you want. There's also a mozilla plugin. You
can save streams and even rebroadcast them from inside Kaffeine. I filed the
ITP for this one, and my debs should be in Debian within the week. If you
just can't wait, grab the debs from my site.
My debs: http://greenfs.mine.nu/files/debs/
P.S. Keep in mind that Kaffeine is very new. It's more stable than Noatun (for
me) but it can be a tad fragile at times. I use amarok for music and Kaffeine
