in linux, I give it no options at all, it just plays it. Here are the
settings I have included in gentoo, not sure if any of those are
important, but it'll give you an idea of what things are included.

As for the NUV in windows thing, I got it to work. I installed dsMyth and 3ivx:

dsMyth: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dsmyth/
3ivx: http://www.3ivx.com/download/

that seemed to work, nuv files that contain the transcoded mpeg4
recordings open right up in windows media player, now.
