[mythtv] Calling all (video) iPod users...

I've been fairly lax in developing support for iPod video in nuvexport.
 I only added basic support when people bugged me loud enough (and
helped with some code) because I didn't have a video-capable iPod (or
one with a battery that would last more than 15 minutes).

Anyway, I now have a new iPod that can actually play video, so I'm
curious about getting some real h.264 encoding set up (or just improving
the current mpeg4 stuff so that seeking works properly).  I've googled
and encoded and googled some more, but have had NO luck in getting a
file that plays properly.

On top of that, I've had a friend capture the output from Handbrake in
osx (it calls ffmpeg on the commandline), and run the exact same code
through ffmpeg in linux, and was not able to play the resulting file.

So, someone out there must be having SOME success, since I find it
unlikely that I'm the only person out there who owns an ipod and doesn't
run windows or osx.  If you have any suggestions, please let me know and
I'll make sure the goodness gets put into nuvexport so it will benefit
