I applied it to 0.22-fixes for my Ubuntu 9.10 box.  Worked great - at
least I could watch the accumulated pile of Arte-HD content!

Here's what I did:

apt-get build-dep mythtv	
apt-get build-dep mythmusic

	You might need to do a bit more  installing of appropriate -dev
packages. I probably had some already installed from earlier

	In my src directory

svn co http://svn.mythtv.org/svn/branches/release-0-22-fixes mythtv-0-22
cd mythtv-0-22/mythtv
pushd libs/libavformat
patch -p0 < ~/downloads/libavformat.diff
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mythtv 
make -j 2
sudo make install
cd ../mythplugins
./configure --prefix=/usr/local/mythtv
make -j 2
sudo make install

	I then removed the install mythfrontend package and set up shared
library loading to use the newly installed mythtv libs

sudo bash -c 'echo /usr/local/mythtv/lib > /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local-myhtv.conf'

Note 0: I actually also applied the mythtv_h264_strict_test1.diff patch
as well. Since stuff worked well I never bothered testing to see if it
was really needed or not.

Note 1: due to an oops I actually ran the ubuntu packaged myhthfrontend
with the new libs for quite some time.  Worked fine!  However, mixing
builds is always risky so I wouldn't recommend this!

Note 2: to cleanly switch to a packaged mythtv to try updates out etc
all that is needed  is to comment out the line
in /etc/ld.so.conf.d/local-myhtv.conf and do an ldconfig.

Obviously, once a sanely fixed mythbuntu package is available I'll
simply use that (until the next show-stopper bug shows up... :-( ).
Just don't know of any yet...
