Playing H.264 in a NSV Stream

Hi,
Im trying to play a SHOUTcast(Video) stream with details of: NSV: 122kbps, H264 320x240@23.97fps ~82kbps, AAC LC ~37kbps.
I can hear sound, but see no video, just the nullsoft video logo and a long gray bar underneath it.
(Note: I can play VP6.1 streams normally, its just all the H.264 that dont work)
Can some one please help me get this to work?
Thanks,

Because of license/patent issues, ie. h.264 is not free.

x264 and x264vfw are both free (GPL) and seems to work good.

The GPL does not alleviate the use of owned patents. LAME is open source and Winamp uses it, but they still need to pay the proper royalties to the owners of the MP3 patents.

@Sawg
Thanks for the info.

I found the following article (german)
http://www.heise.de/newsticker/Lizen.../meldung/42108

a) the first 100,000 units per year are free
b) 100 001 - 5 000 000 units cost 20 U.S. cents per copy
c) > 5 000 000 units are only 10 U.S. cents per copy
d) the maximum costs are 5 million U.S. dollars in 2009/2010

If these informations are right, I think you could use it with Winamp Pro for a price of maybe 20,00 U.S. dollar?

How much are the costs for MP3?

TestPC: Gigabyte GA-K8NS Pro; AMD Athlon 64 Venice 3200+; 2x 1GB MDT DDR-400-CL2; Club3D HD4670 AGP; Samsung HD103SJ, SyncMaster 204BM oder NEC VT48

Entering a Winamp Pro registration key into Winamp -> Prefs -> Winamp Pro will unlock the Pro features.
As from Winamp 5.57, native h264 decoding (in NSV, MP4, AVI, FLV & MKV containers) is a Winamp Pro only feature.
