Re: http live stream doesn't use requested size [In reply to]

Seems to work fine here. I tried passing in just a height of 720 and then
again passing in just a width of 1280 and my 1080i recording was converted
down to 720. Can you try playing one of the .ts files in mplayer or
something else that will report the video size? The individual .ts files
should be located in ~/.mythtv/tmp/hls/ on the backend. They get cleaned
up when you delete the stream, so you'll need to start one, then try
playing the .ts file before you delete. You can stop the stream transcoding
if you want to after you have a playable .ts file, you only need to test
the first one. You can also test using the JW Player flash player on
the master backend webserver. http://backendIP:6544/samples/hlstest.qsp
That page will have a link to the 1-click JW Player install if you haven't
installed JW Player yet. Once JW Player is installed, you can
start/stop/play/delete streams from that test page. You might get prompted
for a password when you try to install JW Player, this is the default
backend web admin login/password of admin/mythtv. This login and password
will be used to protect the web setup pages once we convert to using them
to replace mythtv-setup hopefully in time for 0.26.
