 Actually, I'm trying to just play it without recording (seemed a simpler
thing to do, I'm getting a bit tight for media/backup space - they use
the same disk).  I was going by what the documentation said for flv,
plus the need to install flvstreamer (?) to gain access to some of the
files.  Will try 'recording' later.

 I don't have Mplayer either!

 Thanks for the suggestion.

After tragedy, and farce, "OMG poneys!"
