I didn't know it was possible to install MythTV without mythffmpeg, how did you do that?

And if you didn't already have mythffmpeg installed, and you didn't have ffmpeg on the frontend either then what was it using before? Or doesn't the frontend need mythffmpeg - but then why would the frontend have a ffmpeg over-ride if it didn't need mythffmpeg?

I'm confused... I thought it was a given that anyone with MythTV had mythffmpeg?
