nuvexport does NOT care about the file format...  if it's mpeg2, it lets 
ffmpeg or transcode handle it on their own (unless you use 
--force_mythtranscode), and if it it's nupplevideo, it uses 
mythtranscode to make raw-av fifo's.

the most likely cause of the "error while opening file" is because of 
the piped commands used to run ffmpeg..  one of them is failing.
