If there is any possibility that the QWebPage supports the flash plugin, I'm
all for it.  Hulu (for one) works fairly well with Firefox and the plugin
and if we could generate a control that could display the embedded Hulu
player, that would be a major bonus for Myth, I think.  Since Hulu publishes
your shows as an RSS queue like Netflix, I see the integrate being very easy
(assuming the Flash support is there)
