The above does try to initiate playback and indicates "Ok" through the
network control port, but it fails...

This does work however:
# query location
Playback Recorded 00:00:14 of 01:08:57 1x 11211 2010-12-11T08:53:00
369 myth://192.168.0.2:6543/11211_20101211085300.mpg 25
# play file myth://192.168.0.2:6543/11211_20101211085300.mpg
OK
