I understand this option is available in the deprecated (?) Mythweb, but
in the WebFrontend you can select Recordings > Watch and then you have 3
options "Play in Browser", "XSPF/M3U8/ASX" and "Download". I remembered
"Play in Browser" option (which doesn't work for me), but forgot about
the other two - thanks for reminding. I will test their usefulness for
my purpose.

BTW, I don't know how difficult it is but the best way to maintain the
Windows version is IMHO crosscompilation.

You can have a look at


as an example. I used it without problems on several occasions but never
tried to undestand how it actually works, so I have no idea whether it
is adaptable to any other purpose.
