That's not entirely accurate. Apple tends to deny things for no
apparent reason... but the basic concept is correct.

Now, I ponder, have you tried using the flash player in mythweb? I am
streaming an episode of SNL from my backend at home to my pc at work
right now with limited issue (well, the backend is a 2.4ghz P4, so
there's a LOT of waiting for the buffer to fill.... but that's another
issue easily solved with a new CPU/MoBo) Maybe you could contribute
your services to making that more stable instead of reinventing the
wheel and trying to implement an HTTP server in myth? It seems to me
apache does the job better than virtually anything else you would be
able to write, and is secure.
