I'm currently struggling as well with the myth2ipod script.
I took the source-rpm of ffmpeg from atrpms and recompiled ffmpeg to
assure the aac (codec) is enabled.
I found that I can convert mpeg2 videos to mp4 (ipod) when starting
(In the meantime, Axel (atrpms) was very helpful and updated the ffmpeg
package on atrpms with the using the source).
I tried to nail down my problem when starting "nuvexport -debug".
(nuvexport is called form myth2ipod).
In the debug mode nuvexport provides a list commands executed, so you
just do the conversion step by step, using two shells.
In my case the error was caused by a SIGFPE (floating point error),
casued by ffmpeg.....
I'll investigate a bit further to check if this has to do with the fifos
created by nuvexport.
I'm not sure how to get a hold of people coding nuvexport, but I'll also
post this behavior on the ffmpeg-devel list, because on the end ffmgeg
falls over the FPE issue...
