Question:  how do you expect ffmpeg to determine the frame-size of raw
data?  It seems like that would be very painful.  The same is true of the
audio sampling rate.  In fact, I was going o ask how you wanted that
information provided.  obviously, mythtranscode knows the audio and video
settings, but I don't know what the easiest way to provide it is.
