You should get a login/password prompt from the backend since that
functionality is protected by the same code that will service the backend
web setup once we complete it.

Unzip it into ~/.mythtv/3rdParty/  

It should create a JW_Player subdirectory containing the player.

Once that is installed, the hlstest.qsp and JW Player install pages
should show that the file is installed.  Then you should be able to
test the HLS functionality if you have compiled with libx264 and libmp3lame
support.  We'll probably default those to on in master soon(ish).  We
already require libmp3lame for NuppelVideoRecorder, the --enable-libmp3lame
option just enables mp3 encoding support for the ffmpeg libraries we use.
libx264 will be an added dependency when we default to --enable-libx264.
