With the new release of mythtv I decided to take the plunge and upgrade. I've generally been pretty impressed with the new version, including the ability within the MythNews plugin to pull down .flv files from sites such as youtube or google video.
That piqued my interest. One of the things I've really been wanting in Myth is the ability to merge podcasts/vodcasts into the mainstream product, without having to use a tool outside of the main project. Seeing as Myth could now pull down .flv files I was curious to see how it handled a podcast feed.
