mythrename.pl runs the command:
file -b /path/to/recording.ext 2>/dev/null
and searches the output for "MPEG" or "mpg" (case-insensitive). If
found, it uses the suffix ".mpg" otherwise, it uses ".nuv".
So, what does "file -b" return on some of the recordings that are
switching back and forth? Have you been running mythrename.pl on
multiple hosts (i.e. master backend/slave backends)--possibly with
different versions of the file command on them? What version(s) of file
do you have?
