[mythtv] Mythweb and Windows Media Player over Samba

I didn't bother to test this originally with IE, since I only use Firebird.
It appears that IE ignores the MIME type and instead pays attention to the
filename's extension. After a little bit of testing, I found you could fix
this by throwing a line like:

header("Content-Disposition: attachment; filename=mythtv.asx");

into wmplay.php. Hope that helps!

Thanks for this, it works nicely. The only problem is that IE6 loads the
file as a .php instead of a .asx (Mozilla Firefox produces a .asx).
I've never been able to get the myth:// url's to work because I'm always
using CVS versions, so this is a good alternative.
