The quick and dirty solution, tell MythNetvision to use one of the RSS 
feeds listed here.


MNV will operate just fine as an RSS reader, assuming the links provided 
by the feed go directly to the video. That will open up the whole page 
in an internal browser. The flash player is configured to autoplay, but 
if you want any kind of control, you're going to need to use a mouse and 

If you want a bit of a cleaner solution, and are willing to spend a bit 
of time writing it, you can write a grabber script that reads the RSS 
feed, extracts the specific player information, and provides a custom 
webpage with nothing but the flash player. A more elaborate grabber 
would be one that provides javascript controls to hook MythTV's native 
controls into the flash player, but that is dependent on the flash 
player actually exposing such things in the first place. There's a nasty 
mess of one-liner, obfuscated javascript on that page, and something of 
that sort could be hidden in there, but a cursory run through didn't not 
find any API that would allow that kind of control.
