Try playing the same track using ffplay. If you get the same problem
there then it's likely an ffmpeg bug and will have to be fixed by them.

The protocol version check error is unrelated. It does mean you have
incompatible versions of mythbackend and mythfrontend trying to talk to
each other which is a bad thing and needs to be fixed.
