I have been having stability problems with my Myth backend and primary front end so I went for a upgrade.

yum upgrade \*myth\*

This worked perfectly except MP4’s would not play anymore.  Normally this would not be an issue except almost everything I have is in MP4 (H264) with (AAC) audio.    It took a little time to find the solution and I messed with all kinds of menu’s and such in the end it turns out a symlink is missing:

ln -s /usr/lib/libfaad.so.0  /usr/lib/libfaad.so

Then they magically worked.

The upgrade also changed a log of functionality which can be a learning curse read up before you upgrade.
