I use VLC installed on my work laptop for exactly that purpose.  I
have a user job that runs does a lossless mythtranscode to cut
commercials and then uses ffmpeg to compress to a h.264 file with mp3
audio.  The user job drops that into a directory which I copy to my
work laptop before a big trip.  VLC plays the files back fine.  Myth
has been getting the commercials 99% right so I trust it do auto-cut
the commercials.
