Transcoding Usability Improvements


Major thanks for all of your improvements across the SageTV platform. I will be contributing to your Patreon account.

For several years I have managed to use the miniclient on Sony TVs for remote site access (I cheat using site to site VPNs). I worked with Narflex a few years ago to insert a option into .properties that disabled transcoding (actually let me set the bandwidth test low enough that transcoding wouldn't be triggered as bad comcast latency/packet loss at stream start frequently triggered incorrect bandwidth readings).

At the time my fix was to implement real time transcoding in OpenDCT (on record) to push bandwidth down to an acceptable level but that had adverse playback consequences throughout the eco-system and stressed my hyper-v host (dual processor E5-2643v4 @3.4ghz) when multiple recordings occurred. I ended up giving up this angle and haven't found another great fix yet.

While fixing FFMPEG is the wholly grail just being able to get basic transcoding working in a compatible container and reasonable HD bandwidth (real streaming @ 6-7mbps even if it isn't adaptive!!!) would massively reduce the WAF and insure a future for Sage.

Very Excited!
