I've been using Air Video for viewing movies for a while. I finally got
around to playing with it for MythTV content a few days ago. It appears
to have potential.
I'm running the server on OS X. My MythTV content is mounted on my Linux
Myth box via the FUSE MythTVfs application and then exported via NFS to
the OS X host. This gives me a somewhat sane listing of shows in the Air
Video app. It'd be nice if I could create a directory hierarchy (e.g.
title\subtitle - date.mpg) within the FUSE mount, but I'm not sure
that's possible and haven't really looked into it. I'm also seeing
occasionally heavy CPU usage from MythTVfs. However, overall, it's
working and usable.
