Its QT. I personally find the opengl painter to be a pain in the rear. 
Myth is slow enough but with opengl its painful try to do anything while 
displaying HD content. I follow the dev mailing list and have not seen 
any indication that they are going away from QT so use it if it works 
better for you. If a dev wants to chime in here to verify my assumption 
I would appreciate it.
