Do you have ffmpeg installed? It is used externally of mythtv to
provide the video transcoding for the flashplayer. Also what is the
source of the video you are trying to play because I don't believe
ffmpeg supports the NuppelVideo container that mythtv uses if it
software encodes a stream from an analog source.
