i dont know if this has been discussed - i havent seen anything, but
what do people think about the experimental video streaming using
I'd personally prefer to see HTML5 support than use flash.

there's still lower end devices that do not support flash, but since
HTML5 is just a browser upgrade, then that has the possibility for
more device support.

the code I've seen seems a bit simpler than the flash alternative:
http://www.w3schools.com/html5/tag_video.asp, and seems to give
similar results in both resources and options available for handling
the player.

i'm going to be open - i dont have any knowledge of php, or html5 so i
dont know the ins and outs of getting this working with mythweb, or
how to even make a proof-of-concept solution, but from a user
perspective, it seems like a fairly trivial change.
