The plugin calls mplayer on the client machine so it can play any stream that 
mplayer on that client machine can handle. This way of working goes around 
the backend - but because I want to play Internet based content I'm happy for 

About integration in mythmusic: I'm thinking about adding video streams in a 
later stage. That would make this a "av stream" module, not something to add 
to mythmusic. But I'm open to suggestions.
