(In [14462]) Some minor changes to MythNews?'s multimedia support.

  • Add the missing enclosures.png and need-download.png images. If anybody can find better images that would be appreciated.
  • Move the status icons to the info panel below the thumb image. Seems like a more appropriate place for them and gets rid of the bad flicker when scrolling though articles.
  • Use the default Video Player set in MythVideo? to play video files rather than force users to always use the internal player.
  • If an article thumb image isn't available then use the site image if there is one available.
  • While downloading a file change the displayed byte counts to be a little more user friendly.

Pushing this, new plugins like MythTube? look like better alternatives to adding media support to MythNews? and 2 days from a feature freeze nothing new is going to be happening related to this ticket.

Closing as obviated by MythNetvision? (though some of these goals are worthwhile ones for that)
