Aah... now there's a useful tidbit! I had switched to libmpeg2
previously because I read somewhere about better performance with
libmpeg2 on AMD processors, but I can't really tell a difference for
my uses ... so I left it on libmpeg2.

Now, though, if using ffmpeg means that the Internal player can play
nearly all of my video files, I'll happily switch back to fffmpeg
"Standard" so that I can maintain a consistent user interface and
control set for recordings, videos, and DVDs. :)
