[mythtv-users] MythVideo Plugin won't work: unable to initialize plugin 'mythvideo'

I am fooling around with MythTV and have it on a RHEL
5 box at the moment. I've installed MythTV from source
utilizing version 0.20. Everything so far has gone
fairly well except for playing videos.

I think I should point out that I do NOT have a
capture card installed yet. I am attempting to use
MythTV for only playback right now. I want to look at
its interface and see how it all works with regards to
the user experience prior to spending some money on a
capture card, new case, remote, and wireless

So anyway, I can play MP3's, look at pictures, check
the weather (sort of), browse news (sort of), and even
try to play games (don't have any right now). What I
CAN'T do is try to access the MythVideo plugin. 

When I try to access the MythVideo plugin in any way,
I get an error. Granted, I don't get the error
displayed within the MythTV output. Nothing actually
happens when I try to access MythVideo. The error is
obviously sent to standard out. 

It is as such:

2007-08-08 16:27:22.936 MythPlugin::Init() dlerror:
undefined symbol:
2007-08-08 16:27:22.966 Unable to initialize plugin

I have reinstalled the MythVideo plugin several times
after performing a "make distclean". I can't seem to
figure out why this is breaking. 

Hopefully one of you can help me. Thanks!
