I think we have another problem here. MythBrowser doesn't seem to want
to play the flash video URLs from the SBS site. It just sits and
hangs. I've visited the Adobe flash test page in MythBrowser and it
appears that flash is working. Could the problem be because the URL in
my RSS feed isn't an HTML page with embedded flash, it's the URL to
the actual .flv file itself?

So then I thought, no problem, I'll just specify "mplayer" in the
<player> tags as mplayer is what my original script used.
Unfortunately the <player> tag seems to get ignored by MythNetVision
and it continues to try to play the video in MythBrowser. The MNV wiki
says that the <player> tag is "Not yet fully implemented". Does it, in
fact, mean "Not at all implemented"? Is there I way I can force MNV to
use mplayer?
