Hm, doesn't work for me. I have just noticed that even on a normal
desktop (Kubuntu 11.04) Firefox just downloads the asx file and hands it
over to the system's Videoplayer (Totem). There must be something wrong
with my flash-support, probably on the backend (Mythbuntu 10.10).
flashplugin-nonfree is installed on all my machines. Is there anything I
have to enable for Mythweb to send and receive flash streams?
