Sigh...why did I subscribe in digest mode?  Sorry for any weirdness with my
emails.  That's fixed now.

Hmm, good catch.  I'll look into it.  Additional examples are always

Luckily, video decoding/rendering is actually relatively easy with
OpenMAX.  I've had way more trouble with audio.  So I'm not too worried
about getting video up and running.  I hope to leverage the existing audio
code in MythTV, but I just wanted to get the opinion of the developers on
that.  I do have a little worry about A/V sync (although shouldn't be too
bad) and stereoscopic output as I don't have a 3D TV to test with.

And Joe, I'd much rather have a fully integrated player rather than
launching an external one.  It would probably be pretty trivial to launch
omxplayer from mythtv, but like you said, you lose a lot of functionality
that way.
