Mythvideo branch is mostly functional. I've a list of about 5 things I need to 
do before I'd be happy enough to merge it back to trunk, there will probably 
be things that need fixing even after that, but nothing that impairs general 
usability (hopefully).

I hope to get stuck into the remaining issues sometime in the next 3/4 days, 
I'm just having trouble getting motivated following my holiday.

It all depends what you are wanting to do. Browsing, selection, playback, 
metadata searches and most other stuff is working. Parental level checks are 
broken, currently all views default to directory browsing instead of flat 
mode, the tree widget is buggy and there are some minor issues such not 
resuming original positions following a rebuild of the tree.

Theme and default layouts need polishing, I'm experimenting with alternate 
defaults which don't just copy the original mythvideo but do something to 
make better use of mythui.
