mythrename is pretty sweet... After running it I can browse to the

there a reason that myth doesn't do this by default when creating

As for mythweb, I never noticed that before. Has anybody been able to
set it up so you can stream the files from mythweb, without running a
full download? For example, I click a recording and I watch it as it
downloads? Would that be myth/mythweb thing, or a MIME setting in
