I actually just ran into a situation in which I wanted to know the
actual on disk filename. It seems that recent CBS recording are giving
me all kinds of fits playing back with using XvMC in Myth's builtin
player. And my system doesn't have the horsepower to play them w/out
XvMC. However, Xine will play them just fine... but I need to know which
file to load into Xine.
