How does that work, exactly? I know MythTV uses embedded versions of
ffmpeg (and libmpeg2, I presume). Will ./configure (or, in my case,
the ./configure and flags in the ATrpms SRPM) automatically compile
ffmpeg with threading support? Or are you saying that despite the
embedded ffmpeg, when MythTV transcodes with the internal transcoder
it uses the external ffmpeg?
