[mythtv-users] Transcoding analog recordings to MPEG4

I just started using MythTV Player for Windows and every recording that 
I try to watch a recording that was recorded on an analog station on my 
pcHD5500 card, I get an error saying "Couldn't fine proper video codec 
for 'NONE' ".  I checked their forums and they said that basically, the 
recording has to be transcoded to mpeg4 in order to be played.

Does the transcode settings in Myth support this, or do I have to write 
a script that I can run on the analog recordings to do this via 
mythtranscode?  I looked at the command line parameters to 
mythtranscode, but it looks like I can only specify --mpeg2 to transcode 
to mpeg2, not mpeg4.  If  I can set it up by default, what screen within 
Myth will let me do this?
