[mythtv] Internal player problem with mpeg4 / Quicktime file

Inspired with the latest internal player discussion, I'm trying to get 
it to play a certain mpeg4 file. Below is mplayer log showing file 
contents. I've also attached log when trying to play this file with 
"mythtv" command.

At first, AAC audio codec was missing and that produced errors. I 
enabled options "--enable-libfaac --enable-libfaad" and recompiled and 
now the audio seems to be okay (based on the logs). I have couple of 

1) How about if the configure script would by default enable support for 
these codecs (and others if there are any) if target machine has all the 
necessary libraries and headers? Just to make it handle bit more codecs 
and formats?

2) The video playback of this file still does not work. Can anyone help 
or spot what could be wrong? There is e.g. following lines in log:
2008-01-03 21:00:21.133 VideoOutputXv: InitSetupBuffers() render: , 
allowed: opengl,xv-blit,xshm,xlib
2008-01-03 21:00:21.133 VideoOutputXv: Desired video renderer '' not 
			codec 'None' makes 'opengl,xv-blit,xshm,xlib,' available, using 
'opengl' instead.
