HLS Livestream transcoding, transcodes green line on bottom of recordings

Description

The bottom green line is not visible when the file is natively played but the ffmpeg transcoded version it shows up. I realize the green line is essentially due to the 16 rule, and may not be transcoded into the file itself but whatever metadata issue is still a problem. VLC does show a separate display resolution and actual resolution for HLS encoded files, but the bar still appears. If you tell it to livestream at the same width/height of the original program it doesn't happen. If however you do (as far as I can tell) any other resolution the issue crops up. Even if you target a multiple of 16 (say 1280x720) it shows up. Halfing it (so 1920x1080 to 960x540) shows up.

Tested playback using VLC and a few other players.

Interestingly this is not TV specific either, after transcoding some videos it also appears there.
