#3483 closed defect (fixed)

MythTranscode incorrect bitrate for AVCodec output fps != 29.97

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Isaac Richards
Priority: minor Milestone: unknown
Component: mythtranscode Version: head
Severity: medium Keywords: mythtranscode bitrate
Cc: Ticket locked: no


When MythTranscode? sets up the NuppelVideoRecorder? for MPEG4 (AVCodec) output, it initializes the output codec before it sets the frame rate. This messes with the rate controller when you actually start encoding content like 720p 59.94fps (bitrate ends up twice what would be expected). The solution is to set the NVR framerate before calling NuppelVideoRecorder::SetupAVCodec(), but after setting the tvformat, which sets a frame rate itself.

(In [13893]) Set the frame rate, video aspect, and transcoding flag before initializing the AVCodec output during lossy transcodes.

Closes #3483 using patch by Bryan Mayland.
