When mythcommflag fails to produce a good seektable.  :)

Generally, mythtranscode will do better for MPEG-TS (and/or MPEG-PS) 
streams.  TTBOMK, mythcommflag should /always/ be used for NUV files.  
Chris Pinkham probably can confirm which MPEG stream type(s) are best 
handled by mythtranscode.  However, note that it's possible that the 
mythtranscode code supporting the MPEG streams will be added to 
mythcommflag in the near future (so you'll always use mythcommflag, again).
