[mythtv-users] Codecs for HDPVR

I finally got my HDPVR and am in the setup/testing process. I ran cat
/dev/video0 > test.mp4 which lit up the HDPVR unit and generated a file. So
far so good.
Now I'm trying to play the file on the GNOME movie player, which says I need
to install codecs. I ran the search it offered and it wants to install
GStreamer streaming media framework "bad"
Gstreamer FFmpeg-based plug-ins
Is this the right thing to do from the point of view of the MythTV system
I'm going to use this for? I suppose it could want a different codec
I'm also leery about installing any package with "bad" in the title. Is
there something wrong with it? If not WTF was someone thinking when they
put that in the name?!?
