TTBOMK, only by changing the code.  Generally, though, you shouldn't
need to change the decoder.  Note, also, that the message, "libmpeg2
will use mpeg2 library; this is faster on some AMD processors" doesn't
give the full story--i.e. but doesn't work as well as standard.  And,
TTBOMK, the XvMC options and the Mac hardware option are only usable
when actually displaying the video.

So, in other words, the real question is why would you want to change
the decoder?  What issue are you trying to solve?  If the issue you're
having is that mythcommflag is unable to rebuild the seektable in some
(all?) of your recordings, use mythtranscode --buildindex, instead. 
Many examples exist in the archives, so look them up to see the right
arguments to use.
