This is leanfront not mythfrontend

I just ran a test with a 1080i recording. It goes up to 800% speedup, 
but it seems the wifi connection is not fast enough to maintain that so 
it pauses after a while to buffer. At speeds of 500% and above it is a 
bit jerky, like fast forward, and the audio is just a gabble. At 200% it 
seems usable, but I am not sure what quality is expected. I have it hard 
coded for a set of speeds for 50% to 800%. 800% is the maximum for audio 
speedup but video is supposed to be able to go faster.
