I saw a similar problem with an h264 file I had watched earlier and
had a bookmark after I attempted to rebuild the seek table with
mythcommflag - playing from the bookmark would result in a black
screen and a need to kill the frontend. After rebuilding the seek
table with mythtranscode the problem went away for that video. I have
no idea if it's the same problem you're seeing.
