Sorry, sorry, sorry for my late reply!
I was on vacation and didn't overlooked your feedback. :(

Here's the patch for improving the current version of shotdetect
(1.0.86) [1]

If you've been using the official shotdetect binary, I presume the
problems with the videos are, because it's compiled against a very old
version of ffmpeg (pre v.0.5).
My patch updates the code base to compile against the current version of
ffmpeg, which should fix the issues you're having with not being able to
open videos.

Additionally, I've added time-markers in the graphs, so they're more
useful to read :)

The patched version has now been in production use on Debian Lenny and
Squeeze systems at the Austrian Mediathek [2] for over a year now.
