Really would be easiest for you to go through the source -- the settings code
constrains all values to legal ones properly, and you'll want to copy that
exactly if you're going to reimplement things.

Only valid options are allowed in the UI -- mpeg-2 is _not_ an option in the
'software encoders' group.
I don't really think the codec settings belong in mythweb. I certainly don't
want to have yet another thing to have to update whenever something minor
changes in the main code, and this is a situation where getting out of sync
could seriously break things for people.
