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 
ffmpeg mnually.
(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...
