Given that MythTV uses ffmpeg, it should be "trivial" to have it use
other codecs as long as they are supported by that library. No need for
additional *.so files. And if a new codec is needed, add it to the
upstream FFMPEG sources and it will get downstream to us. That being
said, I've never looked into that part of the code so I'm not sure how
it operates so crack it open and see.
