I'm more than happy to help hook this up.  But I'll readily admit that
my time lately has been limited to verifying/committing patches.  It'd
be sweet to be able to stream stuff to other OS's.

I did discover a "bug" in php tonight, though.  I recently set up
mythweb so that it links the recording thumbnails to the actual nuv
files (well, a web-friendly symlink to them, anyway).  php's stat()
function (used for file_exists()) freaks out if the files are > 2GB.

So for those of you who've been looking at this feature, that's why some
programs won't have links.
