I'm attempting to make the switch to Mythvideo's internal player for 
viewing videos. But when I fast forward or rewind I get audio buffer 
overflow errors. After some archive searching I found a suggestion that 
said to run mythcommflag --video on video files so that a seek table 
could be inserted into the DB.

However, I get this out put when I try it :
[mythtv at myth Shippuuden]$ mythcommflag --video 
2007-08-31 14:41:15.685 Using runtime prefix = /usr
2007-08-31 14:41:15.702 New DB connection, total: 1

Segmentation fault
Seeking in this file after this proves to be no better than before. It 
looks to me like mythcommflag is getting 99% done and then seg 
faulting.  I tried it with "-v all" and got way too much info, happy to 
do another verbose and host it somewhere if someone thinks it will be 

I also tried on a few different file formats not just avi. They all seem 
to segfault.
