[mythtv-users] Playing MPEG2 nuv files under windows

What do people suggest for playing an MPEG2 nuv file under windows. The
file is recorded in TS mode from a DVB card.
I find that I can play these using Nero Showtime but not with WMP or
VLC. This is fine for my desktop but my wife wants to watch some stuff
on her (work) laptop that has WMP only. I definitely can't install
Showtime on there (because it refuses to install unless the machine
contains a suitable CD/DVD burner since it was bundled with my burner).
The odd thing is that I was able to dump a video stream using the
dvbstream -qam 64 -cr 3_4 -gi 16 -bw 7 -tm 8 -f 191625 -ps -o 513 660 > test.mpg
This stream was playable in WMP and VLC but not in Showtime! This video
stuff is all rather confusing.
I have also tried to transcode to mpeg4. This is playable then in WMP
but I don't really wish to transcode since the backend machine is only a
celeron 466, the transcode speed is somewhat abysmal.
Any suggestions on how to proceed greatly appreciated.
