Some ideas:


  mythbackend --setverbose upnp (and mythbackend --setloglevel debug)

You should see lines that include something like:

  ExtractMethodFromURL(end) : AddLiveStream : /Content
  ServiceHost::ProcessRequest: AddLiveStream : GET /Content/AddLiveStream?FileName=1021_20120806020000.mpg&HostName=mc1&Height=360&
     Bitrate=500000& AudioBitrate=96000&SampleRate=48000 HTTP/1.1
  AddLiveStream - StorageGroup missing... using 'Default'
  ExtractMethodFromURL(end) : 1021_20120806020000.mpg.640x368_500kV_96kA.av.m3u8 : /StorageGroup/Streaming
  HTTPRequest::SendResponse( File ) :200 OK ->
  SendResponseFile ( /var/lib/mythtv/storage/streaming/1021_20120806020000.mpg.640x368_500kV_96kA.av.m3u8 )

If you're using the --logpath option, look in mythtranscode.<time>.<pid>.log.

Don't forget: --enable-libx264 and --enable-libmp3lame from:
