The default behavior for mythrename.pl (when run with no arguments) is
actually to rename the files, you need to specify --link in order to create
links. I had been running mythrename without --link and this stopped
mythweb's flv player from working (passing space-y filenames to ffmepeg
without quoting?). Changed to --link and flv player works again.
