Probably depends on whether you're using the Internal player, or an
external one (mplayer, xine etc) to play the file.

This is configured according to file extension.  Look under the
'Player' settings for mythvideo.  Settings/Media Settings/Video
Settings/Player (I think).

You can change the choice of player for each file type, I'm not sure
what formats the Internal player supports though.
