What about replacing the flash player with the HTML5 <video> tag for
supported browsers?  I was playing around last night and got a simple test
working.  Granted, it wasn't a "live" stream from the nuv file.  I had to
run ffmpeg2theora on the video file to create an .ogv file first.


PS.  Sorry if this isn't the correct place, I've been a lurker on the -dev
list for a few months.  Is there a dedicated mythweb list?
