For this sort of thing, I HIGHLY recommend mpd:
http://www.musicpd.org/, and there are several web-based frontends; my
favorite being ajaxmp. It uses a TCP-based protocol so the webserver
doesn't have to live on the mythbox (although with mythweb I'm sure
lots of people have it setup that way already).
