#4178 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Allow mythweb mp3 streaming to use a constant bit-rate

My ADSL uplink isnt that quick, so when I listen to my music while at work I found it helps to reduce the bit-rate and make it constant.

This patch introduces a new setting in the settings table called MusicStreamRecodeBitRate? - setting it to (for example) 128 will force (by re-encoding on the fly with lame) all mythweb mp3 streaming to produce constant bit-rate mp3 streams at 128 kbps.

I'm not sure that having this setting stored in the settings table is the best place for it - perhaps some cookie/session-based setting would be more appropriate.

This feature will eventually happen via a SWF-based player or on-the-fly streaming from the backend. I won't be adding any more proof-of-concept type solutions like I did with the FLV player.
