Not much info when I tried googling it.

BrightCloud has it listed as risk of 'moderate' category 'streaming media' with reputation index of 54.  You can test it at:


Generally it looks benign, but hard to tell if there's something else there that is looking for a special request.  Going there directly returns a couple of HTTP 401 responses and a request for a favicon which gets an OK, but with no icon actually there.  You can always block it and see what happens!
