    .24.x PPA - missing mythtranscode updates?

    Dear,


    I am running mythbuntu 10.04 with daily updates (0.24.x PPAs). Everything works like a charm, getting regular updates for mythtv and required libraries and tools.

    However, my mythtranscode still reports to be an older version and lacks support of the --audiotrack option which trigger a non-working mythtv2mkv.sh script.

    I am wondering how do I get the latest greatest mythtranscode (without compiling mythtv on my own) which supports the --audiotrack option?

    Thanks, -MN

    When was that option added? Maybe it is only in trunk?

    Here's the commit you are referring to:

    https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/com.../mythtranscode

    It was only added to master as far as I can tell. Here's the 0.24 history for the mythtranscode app:

    https://github.com/MythTV/mythtv/com.../mythtranscode

    So I see a couple of options for you:

    1) Request the mythtv developers to add it to 0.24.
    2) Switch to master
    3) Backport the patch yourself locally and then keep a local copy of the mythtranscode binary in /usr/local. You can still keep all the other apps and libraries from the packages though and things will most likely work fine.

    Thanks for the summary. Just to clarify: using master means no PPA, daily-builds, correct?

    Thanks, -MN

    No, that's incorrect. In mythbuntu-control-centre select the 0.25 repo and you will get master builds.

    And to be clear both 0.24 and 0.25 builds are issued at "most" once a day, but they are only kicked off if there have been changes. This is why there are some days that there won't be build updates.
