Thanks for that, will take a look at it when I have more time.

When I go to mythweb >> recorded programs >> click the program I want, I 
get  flashplayer which plays the file for me. Disadvantage is not being 
able to skip and sometime performance with older Analog recordings.
I have the separate player installed, before that no flash-content 
showed up. Don't know when and if I set up the streaming, I recently 
only changed bitrate settings so I could use mor bandwidth of my fiber.
