I've never used it but from what I understand DSMyth provides 2 things a
.nuv codec, which you don't need because you're using a hardware encoder,
and the myth:// URI handler.  Which basically just tells windows to open
myth:// URI links with Media player or VLC or whatever you want, similar to
the way that it knows to use Firefox to open http:// links or ftp:// in
whatever ftp program/web browser you want.

It was supposed to be so Easy.
