 myth_system just spawns the mplay application just like it would if you were 
running it on a commandline. Myth doesn't maintain any control over the
spawned applications keyboard controls or graphical output. It would be 
up to you to tell mplay to display in a specific window or to configure 
it to exit when you wanted.

 What are you trying to do ?
