I have searched through MANY of the forums, helps etc but cannot find
anything that has helped my problem.  I have a handful of .x264 Matroska
files that I have encoded that play all garbled.  I get the following when I
try to play them with the "Internal" mythtv player.  mplayer works fine, but
I would like to use the same player for everything:

I get the same thing on two different frontends.  I have Realtime turned on
and working on my other frontend, and it still gives the same result.  I use
the default playback profiles, one uses "C+" and the other uses "C++"  I
have also tried "Normal".  I have not tried to get my XVMC working yet since
I believe that it is only for mpeg2, and would not help out with my x264

Any help would be appreciated.
