I did. Doesn't show me anything even with --showprogress (I removed the 
I assume that it's sitting there waiting for ffmpeg to pickup the audio 
and video streams from the tmp dir. Does mythranscode create the audio 
and video fifos in a tmp directory?
Assuming this is true, I start ffmpeg (configured from the --debug 
output) and after removing -hq and -4mv (because -hq is unsupported and 
-4mv is... uh... I don't remember) received this error:
"unable to find a suitable output format for '1'"
then ffmpeg exited.

I don't know much about any of these apps, so debugging is just guessing 
on my part.
If vidout and audout are the pipes for mythtranscode, it looks like it 
IS  creating the fifos.
