Anyone ever use the Chinese streaming software UUSee

If you go to there download page
, you'll see links obtain the latest version of "UUSee". The software and installer are all in Chinese.
What is UUSee? Well, I'm not totally sure myself -- which is why I'm asking if others have any experience with it. One web page
explains: "UUSee users download an application for their desktop, allowing the machine to become a node in their peer-to-peer network. A press release in January claimed an installed base at around 30 million. They offer over 60 live channels, including China’s largest network, CCTV. "
It actually seems to offer much more than that. Lotsa sports, news and old movies.
It's a slick program that works very well. One thing causes concern however -- when I run the program my Symantec firewall constantly alerts me to intrusion attempts. I don't know if these are genuine hacking attempts, government monitoring -- or maybe something entirely innocent; some by-product of their coding that doesn't follow the usual protocol. I dunno. Another reason why I'm asking if anyone else has played around with it.
