[mythtv-users] MythVideo Internal Player and ffmpeg/ffplay

I'm running Myth 0.20 using atrpms on Fedora Core 5. I'm trying to play some
.mov files with mpeg4 video and mpeg4/aac audio. I compiled a version of
ffmpeg and ffplay from the latest source and confirmed that the new binaries
could decode and play the .mov files. However, MythVideo still refuses to
play the files:

stream: start_time: 0.000 duration: 627.541 bitrate=1476 kb/s

2007-01-04 21:20:36.062 NVP: Prebuffer wait timed out 10 times.

According to the wiki (http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/MythVideo)
MythVideo uses ffmpeg. I moved the old versions of ffmpeg and ffplay so Myth
wouldn't try to use those. I saw this thread (
and double-checked that my TV playback settings were on Standard.

Is there something else I need to do to make sure that MythVideo is using
the version of ffmpeg that includes aac support?
