James is  running a mac build of v31 (not master) compiled in mid-December
which was cloned from to to include commits
through e9b795a1e43023b4141a28b9c620213097cdfbfe

I do also post master builds less frequently - but since most of the macOS
community stayed with v31 for their backend I haven't heard too many
requests for help on master.

 The next time I package up mac applications (hopefully this weekend), I'll
make a version that backports the master fix you suggested into v31 to see
if it helps.

I'll take a look at these as well in case they can help the issues for v31

interesting.  That may be why "mythtranscode --video --buildindex" worked
for me on James' video (.ts H264) while mythcommflag failed for James.
