[mythtv-users] Freezing and crash with .iso dvds in v0.24-fixes from git

I updated my 0.24.1 install yesterday and it has been nothing but
troubles.  The compile went fine but there is a huge issue with
watching DVD's from .iso.  They are in a storage group but on a drive
local to the frontend / backend.

When playing a .iso DVD there is a long pause (a minute or so) after
pressing "play".  I then navigate to the menu and again another long
pause.  Occasionally it will make it to the root menu but most often
it will drop back to the frontend with a "Video frame buffering failed
too many times" error.  This happens in about 50% of the movies in my
collection.  Last night we tried to watch Castaway and the only way we
got it working was using the physical DVD.  Even then there were
issues because the movie would crash to the frontend as the main title
started to play.  We managed to get it working by going to the title
menu and selecting the second chapter and jumping back to the
beginning.  About a quater they way thorough the film it crashed to
Frontend again.  Once again, I selected the chapter just after the
crash and backed it up.

The pastbin below is from trying to play the .iso.
