There is also information about the streams' quality, measured in Kbps, number of users currently
connected to this channel and the overall quality of this stream. This last measure
is supposed to reflect the percentage of total users who are able to view this stream properly.
For example, if the number is 93.45% for a certain channel it means that 93 out of every 100 connected
users are able to watch this channel properly.
To view a channel select it by double clicking on it. Once done, a V sign should appear next to that channel
