That's excellent. I wondered if that was the case as I remember some
commits improving the general URL/file handling. Airplay is primarily based
on RTSP but streaming video is far more complicated than pointing a player
at a URL. It does seem that it would be fairly trivial to test by getting
the URL from this python wrapper and feeding it to mythavtest (or whatever
it is called in master) and seeing what it does with it.
