MiMMS: My first OSS project :D

I started to work on MiMMS, an MMS stream downloader written in python.

When I first looked at the application it looked pretty much what I needed to download Italian TV shows to my N810 and watch them while I was on the bus (trying to take advantage of dead periods). The little problem was that (as for many other mms servers) the bandwidth was limited and it was taking me an hour to download just one show.
So I registered a new branch of MiMMS that allows you to split the stream in many parts and use all your bandwidth to be quicker. It still has a lot of work to do, but it works pretty well and I hope it'll soon be packaged for Debian.

Enjoy ;)
