I noticed that pipes read ok if I just send them to single ffmpeg, but
I wasn't sure if it's yuvdenoise or the whole combination at once,
ffmpeg | yuvdenoise | ffmpeg, that's messing it up.

I'd love to, but I can't get it to run from command line:

# mythtranscode -V 3 -c 1003 -s 2005-06-05T19:00:00 -p autodetect -d -l 
New DB connection, total: 2
