    Mythweb Direct Download - file extension names

    When I use Mythweb to output a recording as an .mpg file (using the Direct Download button) the file ends up with a name suffix consisting of ".mpg..mpg.". Ie too many mpg suffixes.

    This has started to occur only since a recent update of my system to 10.04, which included a Mythtv update.

    There must be a parameter setting somewhere that describes the suffix, but where is it. Or where else do I look in my set-up to resolve this as a problem.

    Hi,

    I'm seeing this aswell, since upgrading to autobuilds. I can still watch the downloaded videos with vlc on my windows laptop so it's not a problem for me.

    It's an upstream bug that was fixed in trunk. I'm not sure if it was fixed in 0.23.1 though.

    So how do you get 0.23.1? I already have autobuilds enabled and have just done am apt-get update/upgrade and am at 25423.

    Our network is up to date as of a week or two ago (recent enough to fix the fanart dilemna), yet still doubles up the .mpg extensions through MythWeb...

    While a slight annoyance, it doesn't bother me too much - the recordings I pull through MythWeb are always gonna be transcoded anyways, so thus will always wind up with a new (.avi) filename at any rate. Even before transcoding the files are completely usable as they still have an .mpg extension at the end of the day

    Cheers,
    Mattt.

    Hmm, I can't find the bug report right now, I'll continue searching.

    As for auto-builds, there is now a 0.23.1 PPA, 0.23.0 PPA will not receive more updates. You can manually edit the sources for 0.23.1, you will need to disable mythbuntu-repos to do this though. I'll update mythbuntu-repos when I can, but it will probably be after thursday (feature freeze)
