That's fine, most (if not all) of my media is h264. OK, they would have
to be re-packed from mkv to mpeg-ts. Not sure why the restriction on
audio (or video, for that matter) codec - surely that choice should
depend on what the receiving system can handle?
My main question is about the enforcement of an expensive scale and
re-encode of the video stream. Why isn't there a 'leave it alone and let
the client deal with it' option?
