Hmmm, that's odd. Ever since lossless transcoding stopped working last November I've been jumping on ffmpeg resyncs in the hope lossless would return. This is the first time it has worked but it's possible I missed a significant commit in the recent past.

I tried creating samples but now I no longer see the missing audio problem even though it's the same code and other episodes of the same show. All that happened between then and now was the machine shut down while I was out for the day. Very strange.

Encoder. It's the problem I describe here:


Nobody replied when I asked if anyone is able to create HLS streams and I got distracted and never opened a ticket.

The fact that rolling back to a previously working revision didn't restore streaming and now the strangeness above makes me wonder if something is wrong on my system. On the other hand it's debian wheezy, which just became the stable release, plus a few packages from deb-multimedia.org. Nothing scary there.
