[mythtv] Adding "HTTP" as source to the IPTV Recorder?

I've started looking at the "iptv" recorder, trying to figure out if I could add support for streaming a h264 TS over 
http. What I would like to achieve is the possibility to write a list of http-urls in the m3u file and then use some 
kind of HttpSource for the transport streams. I hope this would be very similar to the "UDP" streaming inputs.

"ffplay" is able to play the stream and reports this when starting my test-stream:

> Input #0, mpegts, from 'http://xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx':
>   Duration: N/A, start: 16515.528733, bitrate: 256 kb/s
>   Program 1
>     Stream #0.0[0x79]: Audio: mp2, 48000 Hz, stereo, s16, 256 kb/s
>     Stream #0.1[0x6f]: Video: h264, yuv420p, 640x576 [PAR 8:5 DAR 16:9], 25 tbr, 90k tbn, 50 tbc

Any thoughts on this?

Thanks for all your work on MythTV, it's amazing!
