That's up to the driver configuration in your browser/player.  However, 
the cvs version of mythweb should auto-detect windows browsers and use 
myth:// urls (http://dsmyth.sf.net) -- earlier versions of mythweb have 
this set up in their config files.  If I understand its author 
correctly, it will stream the media directly from the backend.
