Hi -

	Up until a few days ago I was able to play .m2v (mpeg-2 files
	created with 'mpeg2enc' from mjpegtools).

	Tonight mplayer says "sorry, this file format not recognized ..."

sitka.17-> mplayer nld.m2v

Exiting... (End of file)

	file nld.m2v says:

		nld.m2v:      MPEG video stream data

	mplex'ing with an audio stream produces something recognized - ah yes,
	that works.   So it seems that only 'bare' mpeg-2 video files aren't
	recognized at the present time.

	Hopefully the libmpdemux/ checks can be enhanced a little ;)
