Permissions are not the issue, all users have full access to the
directory the files are stored in, and all users have read access to
all the files generated by myth (including the thumbnails).  I can
also use the direct download icon from mythweb to dl the mpg file, so
that further shows it is not a permission issue.  I think the issue is
what Shawn said.

When I have time, I will look into NFS.  I am just curious if that
gives me other benefits besides this.  It seems like a non-trivial
thing to set up SFU and NFS on a windows box, and if the only plus is
to make mythweb pretty, I am not sure it is worth it.
