 The error is actually in a very similar call in the Perl bindings.  The
 Perl bindings are calling mplayer to gather a bunch of information about
 the video in question.  The final plan for this is to make the information
 available in the database, populated at the time of recording, however
 this is likely not to happen until 0.26.  As a short term alternative,
 MythTV now builds a 'mythffmpeg', intended as a target static to a
 specific MythTV release (rather than the moving target that is ffmpeg),
 that could be used to extract this information.
