Nope.  It just doesn't play them.  mplayer can, sort of (it was patched 
awhile ago to play an older version of the nuv file format), but that's 
about as good as you get.

If you want something you can play in xine, use nuvexport to save as 
xvid (the files will be smaller, too) and then use mythvideo to play 
them if you want to watch them in mythtv, too.
