Is your Apache error log is showing something like:
    Digest: uri mismatch <full url> does not match request-uri <url
without servername>

If so, it apparently has to do with the way the Android browser
(w/flash) requests digest authenticated files, then mod_rewrite gets
involved and apache gets cranky.

I was able to work-around this problem by disabling authentication for
.flv streams.  The directive is in the sample apache mythweb config
file, but it is commented out:
<LocationMatch .*/pl/stream/[0-9]+/[0-9]+.flv>
    Allow from all
I added the .flv part to make me slightly better about disabling authentication.
