Ok, I've implemented an initial patch that will get mythtv using libmp3lame
via dlopen. You can find the packaging at
It seems to me mythtv only used libmp3lame for encoding, so there's no need
for a decoder. I could work on this some more where mythtv falls back to using
libtwolame in case libmp3lame is missing.
Any feedback is welcome. :)
