I'll get back to you on this, I'm not sure myself...

AFAIK that's because MythVideo was renamed to Video when it was merged 
into core (ie it's no longer a separate) module. I had notice a few 
capitalized Video but wasn't concerned that much since in English they 
capitalize a lot more than in other languages but I hadn't noticed those 
"Video video", I'll fix these tonight...

You mean the HtmlUI context? HtmlStrings.h (IIRC) is the file which is 
used by lupdate to add these strings so they can be translated.

Once translate these if you really want to as they are part of the web 
setup which will not be accessible in 0.25 as it is not complete...

OK, you really mean the file... The themestrings.h and htmlstrings.h 
files are used to add new strings which either come from themes 
(themestrings.h) or the web setup (htmlstrings.h) because lupdate can 
only extract strings which appear to be part of source code (which 
neither the themes nor the web setup files (qsp I think) are).

Web services...

re: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/Services_API

There are the new web services which were added in 0.25...

If you have other questions don't hesitate to ask...

Have a nice day!
