Here's my experience with playing the Apple h.264 clips in the
Internal player with a recent SVN:
* Video plays, but no audio. Adding --enable-libfaac and/or
--enable-libfaad to MythTV's ./configure permits audio to
function. Example: bbc_cctv.
* Video plays, but no audio. Haven't yet found a configure flag that
permits audio to work. Example: bbc_japan.
* MythVideo returns to the file view after a few seconds of
black. Discussed in the already-mentioned ticket #4419. Example:
 Aside from the performance issues; I'm just talking about
Frontend: P4 3.0GHz, 1.5TB software RAID 5 array
Backend: Quad-core Xeon 1.6GHz, 6.6TB sw RAID 6
Video inputs: Four high-definition over FireWire/OTA
Accessories: 47" 1080p LCD, 5.1 digital, and MX-600
