[mythtv-users] One file won't scan into Video library

Weird one this...

Is there a log setting which will tell me why a file that mplayer & VLC
are both quite happy with doesn't appear when I drop it into the video
storage group and scan.

Other files are fine - or at least have been up to now and I haven't
change the software.

Is there a command line utility that creates the same hash as the Video
library code and if so how would I search the database for a duplicate?

This is a file I created from an mp3 file using ffmpeg and a single jpeg
frame. This because the video player can seek and I can set a bookmark
which I can't do in the Music player and I find to be necessary for a 2
hour file that I doubt I'll have time to listen to in one go!

Is the signature of the file coming out the same as one of the 11 files
already loaded and created with the same jpeg (but different mp3's) ?
