Your latest patch is an improvement.  Now when I try and play "Pirates
of the Caribbean", hard drive activity is 1 second on followed by 2
seconds off, repeat.  Still will not play the movie, but at least now
I can get control back and actually kill mythfrontend, instead of
hard-resetting the machine.  Before I killed the mythfrontend, I
noticed it was at 99% CPU usage.

I popped in Star Trek Insurrection, and it played just fine. 
Something about Pirates causes it to go nuts, however.

I have not tried it yet, but I am curious if this can be used to play ISO files?
