Transcoding support for tvheadend #123

This PR adds support for transcoding of streams when using my branch of tvheadend that supports transcoding:

There are a few things missing but I would like to get some feedback on the approach I've taken.

The feature makes use of menu hooks in order to configure the subscription requests. You can enable/disable transcoding, select audio/video codecs and choose a resolution. If the server doesn't support transcoding, the menu hook won't be added. Also, the codecs you can choose from is sent from the server so only valid ones will appear.

The problems right now is that I don't really know how to store the settings to settings.xml after the menu hook has been executed. Any ideas on how to do that?


ooo, nice


I am getting this error when trying to open the setting in xbmc.

xxxnelly, I had to manually copy the skin for the dialog into the confluence skin folder (DialogTranscode.xml)


nice indeed

we currently don't have any setters for those settings on the interface, only getters. so it's currently not possible to change settings from within the add-on.


could you update the version to 1.6.6 and update the changelog (as in commit 6635349) and could you put "[tvheadend]" in front of all commit notes. thanks

Done. Note that changes made using the client specific dialog won't be saved on shutdown.


sure, that's something for frodo+1

Hi, is it possible to remap/transcode the audio channels in ACC? I get it in 5.1 but just want to have stereo. Thanks :)
LeonTV on iShit is badly not changing it :(
