Thanks to people who shared ideas and Byron, who shared that he had the
same problem. I dropped this issue for a few weeks because I simply got
too busy, but then had a "doh!" and a "duh!" moment and remembered the
old alternative: xbmc.

"Dusting" this off (used to use it a few years ago) with an updated
iview add-on and I was back in business. However, when I tried it on
another laptop with basic ubuntu install I found problems installing the
iview add-on. I solved that by trying the xbmc spin-off, kodi. This must
have pulled in some extra dependencies compared with xbmc because I was
able to get iview working with kodi. I know, it's not a sexy coding
hack, but it got me what I wanted.
