Still under development, only available from CVS, may cause terrible things
to happen to your setup if you download it, build it, or run it.
Basic idea is to take the notion of the myth transcoding daemon (headless
daemon that keeps processing whether any client is attached to it or not),
and extend it to content sharing (on a local network), audio playing,
streaming, etc. Also, open interfaces and "standardized" protocols for
exchange content with other applications. And a bit of Rendezvous/zeroconfig
thrown into the mix.
Only thing it does of any immediate use to an end user is let you play
mythmusic content in iTunes, or iTunes content from an mfe. Oh, and control
audio playing from a web browser (http://host_mfd_is_on:2345/).
