<p class=MsoNormal><span style='color:#1F497D'>&gt;</span>Flowplayer is open
source with devs who most likely want people to be able to use it. One of the
MythTV devs should at least ask the <span style='color:#1F497D'>&gt;</span>flowplayer
devs if an exception can be made for MythTV, or to put pressure on them to
realize that this may not be the best way to <span style='color:#1F497D'>&gt;</span>spread
their software. I haven't looked into it though, but maybe this requirement is
their so they can make people pay for a full license to <span style='color:
#1F497D'>&gt;</span>use it without the logo? In that case they may not change
their licensing, but they might make an exception for a free open source product
<span style='color:#1F497D'>&gt;&gt;l</span>ike MythTV.<span style='color:#1F497D'><o:p></o:p></span></p>

<p class=MsoNormal><span style='font-size:11.0pt;font-family:"Calibri","sans-serif";
