Well, judging from how other players handle it (mplayer and xbmc both
can play it without crashing, but there is some solid evidence of
stream corruption even then) I doubt the stream is 100% valid. Still,
Myth should be able to cope and continue playing as the other players
do. I'll look into cropping the video and posting on my site (I have
plenty of space).
Thanks for the input.
