Yes, thank you.

I installed mythffmpeg specifically to create those pastebin posts
because I was asked to post the output of "mythffmpeg -i
xxxx_xxxxxxxxxxxx.mpg". I had ffmpeg installed on the back end, and I've
now installed it on the front end.

Thanks - at least that explains why I have the problem. I typically record
from five minutes before until ten minutes after a program, so I will need
specific rules for CBBC if I want the previews generated correctly (or is
there an easier way?)
