Add network control for MythVideo to start video/DVD playback

I wanted to be able to remotely (over telnet) start Video/DVD playback in MythVideo? on the frontend the same way recorded programs can be started with "play" command.

My first attempt against 0.21-fixes is attached. Unfortunately, network control messages are not routed to plugins, like MythVideo?, thus handling had to be done in PlaybackBox? (aka Watch Recordings), which is not the way it should be. Also, I only tried Internal player and don't think external players will work.

The full command is "play video [dvd:]filename [resume]"

More or less solved in r21425, which adds a network control for any myth:// or dvd: URL.
