Nice work DjArty!
Any way to distribute this as an app.bin, since they are stored in /apps?

this is nice to see somebody making use of this feature

I think there's really a lot that can be done with it
for streaming, I'm pretty sure this facility supports flash without transcoding etc ...
or what about a WDLXTV configuration page

here's to hoping that this is the first of many apps

Formally .zip have only manifest and two icons.
But main part of work stored on server like html5 application.
So looks like nothing to store in app.bin. Also think app.bin restore in another way than /apps on flash root for apps like this.. May be I'm wrong and app.bin engine can be helpful for delivery apps like this in WDLXTV firmwares for Gen3/Gen4 (need more info).
May be helpful in future store apps (content of .zip) like this e.g. into svn and integrate with WDLXTV WEC - and peoples don't need to download and unzip zipfile and all time have info about new apps and get updates.
