I think he was talking about "recordings"--not "videos." MythVideo
plays "videos" (generally things that Myth didn't record) using any
media player you want. MythTV plays "recordings" (generally things that
Myth did record) using the "Internal" player (which, BTW, can be
specified as the player for MythVideo), which is code in MythTV that
plays videos. MythTV does /not/ use an external player for playing
