I you haven't set it up, you might needto go to: MythWeb >> Settings >> 
MythWeb >> 'tab' VideoPlayback and enable. You might need to adjust 
videosettings there as well depending on your connectionspeed. Since I'm 
on fiber I chose 8000 Kbit to be sure all my recordings will be streamed 
without too much transcoding and without tinny sound.
