 I think being able to add a mime table to the mythbrowser plugin will
 greatly increase its usefullness...to even allow dloads of files and
 stuff...I am willing to help with this as I am a PHP progammer and web dev
 so I do undersatnd how mimes work...the C code frustrates me a bit...but I
 can see just by looking at the code how simple this browser really is...I
 think to start with a few mimes at first(maybe have them open in simple
 apps alreay available on Linux)...and then myabe a setup screen for adding
 new mime and mime handlers would greatly increase useage of
 mythbrowser...and to be absolutely honest yes I know there is a useasge
 there that might be considerred illegal(dloading illegal torrents)...but
 how about the 1000's of legit uses?
