If MPEG4 streamed OK, I guess there is just some tweaking of the
mythstreatv code to get it to read videos too.  Sweet.

I am curios, when you stream mmpeg4 files, does it use as much CPU as
when it is transcoding MPEG2 to MPEG4 on the fly?  I doubt it would,
but this would be a great reason for me to set up the transcoding
feature =D
