You need (NFS|SMB|etc) access to the recordings directory for transcoding
to work. mythtranscode will not transcode a file if it sees "myth://" in
the playback URL for the file. The "myth://" part means that the file is
not available locally (either really locally or over a network filesystem)
and since there is no way to write a file remotely via the Myth protocol
then mythtranscode aborts. If you have the recordings directory mounted
locally, then the "myth://" is not part of the playback URL and
mythtranscode can read and write the file locally.
