[mythtv-users] Browser Player for Mythweb (using MPEG DASH packaging)

Hi all,

I wrote a PHP script that will take care of transcoding (using ffmpeg) and
packaging (using shaka_packager) video files so that users can view their
mythtv recordings via a web browser without manually using any command-line

Here are the features:

   - Transcodes from MPEG2 or whatever format your recordings are in, as
   long as they are recognized by ffmpeg
   - Watch recording while transcode is still taking place (just don't seek
   too far ahead)
   - Use commercial skip info from mythtv database to skip commercials
   - Can transcode videos to multiple bitrates/resolutions for adaptive
   playback over less reliable networks (e.g. cell phone browser).

If anybody has any questions or is interested in helping out, feel free to
file issues on the github page or I will monitor this thread for comments
or questions.

I'm not sure if there is any plugin infrastructure that provides a better
way to integrate with mythweb than the manual patching that I describe in
the README but if anybody has any ideas, feel free to let me know.
