I'm just playing around with things trying to get the best possible svcd
export.  I'd still prefer being able to do this through mplayer (since
when it worked, it worked perfectly), but it doesn't work with myth's
current incarnation of nuv...   the stream thing worked to do svcd, but
used a LOT of RAM, and still had a little audio sync problem (much
better than straight through the incompatible mplayer, though)

used nuvexport to do what?  export sql/nuv just copies the files.  divx
and svcd stuff relies on mencoder/mplayer, which are currently
incompatible with nuv and (at best) have all kinds of audio sync
