It's for playing nuv files.

Once again, I beg the devs to see if it's in their hearts to add support 
to the code for actually using the .mpg file extension for recordings 
that really are mpeg files and not nuv files.  It might make some parts 
of the code a tiny bit more complex, but having mpeg files with nuv 
suffixes is probably the SINGLE most confusing issue about mythtv that 
we have to deal with in #mythtv-users.  Some people just don't seem to 
understand that "nuv" can refer to both mpeg files and nupplevideo files 
-- and in reality they shouldn't have to.  .nuv files should NOT be mpeg 
files, they should be nupplevideo files.  I know this was done to keep 
things easier in the code, but it's a support nightmare.  Especially 
with more and more people using hardware-encoded mpeg files.
