Featrure Request: Control h.264 level

Postby Skibit » Mon Nov 26, 2018 1:55 pm

After a lot of troubleshooting I finally figured out why my videos recorded with the DVR of Plex no longer work on Amazon Fire TV. With the release of firmware 20180327 came the following:

- HDTC-2US: Low level demodulator firmware update.
See here: https://www.silicondust.com/support/dow ... changelog/

This, it seems bumped the h.264 level from 40 to 41 (sometimes noted as 4.0 or 4.1). My Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV sticks refuse to play these videos as Amazon only supports up to level 4 for h.264, see here:
https://developer.amazon.com/docs/fire- ... tions.html

Can the ability to select level 4 (or 4.0 or 40) be added into the transcoder configuration?
