When it reaches the end of the recording.  So, if you're doing a "Live"
recording, it will finish up as soon as the transcode catches up to
real-time.  If you're doing a 1-hour recording and watch only 5 minutes,
it will still transcode the rest of the show.

Sure.  But you'll have to keep trying when it catches up to real-time.

There are various plans in the works for changes to Myth which would
allow things to work differently, but the MythWeb Flash video is still
very new.
