I just some more ogm's to try it out.  And the weird thing is with the
new ones MythVideo can play it correctly.  This is really becoming
weird, as I have no idea what would cause MythVideo to not play a set
of ogm files with mplayer (that mplayer can play) but successfully
play a different set of ogm files.

I was thinking that maybe what is happening is that the file location
that MythVideo is sending to mplayer is actually incorrect. Is there
an easy way for me to double check what the file location that it is
sending to mplayer is?

The file names and paths don;t actually have any spaces in them, but
the filename is long.

Any advice is appreciated
