Comment (by michael.tiller at gmail.com):

 I'm looking into whether mplayer can play it back.  I'm using "-vo null"
 to test this.  I hope that is OK?  Also, when I go to play it I get a line
 like this during playback:

 A: 355.7 (05:55.6) of 33459.8 ( 9:17:39.7)  0.4%

 Note the "9:17:39.7".  Am I correct in interpreting this as implying the
 length of the file is 9 hours, 17 minutes and 39.7 seconds?  If so,
 something is clearly no correct there.  It should be just a one hour show?

 Is there a way to get mplayer to playback as fast as possible (since I'm
 rendering to a null output device)?  Otherwise, I'll have to wait for 9
 hours for it to go through the file when I'm sure it could probably go 5x

 Also, it is worth pointing out that it is already 5 minutes into the file
 and that the thumbnail previews (which are what is causing the crash)
 should be taken from the very beginning (I haven't watched the show so the
 default is like 20 seconds in isn't it?).
