So.... you *will* be able to submit some files and logs of things that
don't work on current internal, then?  No need for a separate ticket
for each, just dump them all in one ticket.  I seem to keep
misunderstanding you-- either the internal player in its current state
won't play things now (in which case if it's complaintworthy you
should submit a ticket) or it's playing them fine (in which case it's
not complaintworthy).  You obviously have strong feelings about it as
you spoke pretty critically of the Internal player-- if it's the case
I know *I'd* like to see it improved-- can you *please* submit a
ticket and some logs for files that are not playing/causing crashes

Nobody suggested it as an immediate change.  But if the Internal
player becomes able to handle any file any other media player can,
then it would be the appropriate choice.  As Mike mentioned earlier in
the thread, Freevo is a frontend for other utilities-- Myth's goal is
different-- to be integrated and consistent throughout.
