[mythtv-users] Crop while transcoding?

Hello All,

I have a couple of questions about the transcoder options:

1) I'm wondering if there's anyway to have the transcoder crop the frame
while transcoding from inside myth. I have many cartoon type recordings that
are recorded from a 1280x720 station but the cartoon doesn't fill the frame.
I want to save space so I need the '-croptop 8 -cropbottom 4 -cropright 170
-cropleft170' specified when I run ffmpeg externally. There aren't any
switches for adding these types of options in the transcoding options menus,
is there some way to implement these switches in the database?

2) I know there are a few different types of transcoder settings, I'm
referring to the "High Quality", "Medium Quality", "Low Quality" options. Is
there a way to choose which one of these methods the transcoder will use
when manually selecting a recording for transcoding? When I choose to
transcode a video from the recordings menu, I'm not sure how to determine
which one it will choose.
