It probably will not work with the built in web browser as you cannot
get flash from there.
I added a button to one of the menus to launch a firefox session:
Put this in /usr/share/mythtv/<pick a menu>
Also, if you are using spdif, it won't work in flash. When I listen to
a flash video, I have to switch from spdif to analog on my external decoder.
