The existing flash player in MythWeb is largely considered dead end 
code, with a desire to move to an HTML5 player, streaming video from the 
backend over MythXML, proxied through MythWeb, with either real-time 
transcoding, or batch transcoding and storage of multiple videos per 
recording.  Do not misunderstand these desires as someone actively 
working towards these goals with a planned scheduled.
