Hmm, I have the same problem. Here's the log:

2004-03-12 19:34:21 Transcoding from /myth/tv/1064_20040311100000_20040311103000.nuv to
Input #0, mpeg, from '/myth/tv/1064_20040311100000_20040311103000.nuv':
Stream #0.0: Video: mpeg2video, 480x480, 29.97 fps
Stream #0.1: Audio: mp2, 48000 Hz, stereo, 384 kb/s
Unknown video codec: strange error flushing buffer ...

Anyone know how to solve this?
