MythWeb automatically uses "myth://" URI's when the client (running the
browser) is a Windows machine. It's assuming you have the DSMyth
filters (properly) installed.
For future reference, though, you should /really/ read the comments next
to the part of the file you're cutting/pasting into a post. You can
learn a lot from them:
// video_url is normally determined automatically (a local link to
// for Linux/MacOS, and a myth:// URL for windows machines), but you
// it here to something else if you really need to.
# define('video_url', 'data/recordings');
# define('video_url', 'file://machine_name/path_to_videos');
# define('video_url', 'myth://slave_backend_ip:6543');
So, to tell MythWeb, "Hey, I didn't install DSMyth!", set it to a value
that includes an "http://machine_name/path" as appropriate.
