Transcode is having errors when trying to convert movies with an odd numbered size, example width:400px height 293px.
I've set maximum width as an even number and the maximum width is some number that should never be reached, like 400px. My movies are all variable in height and width by the way.
So the thing is some videos resize to my width of 400px but the height could end up being an odd number and thats where transcode fails. This happens for all movies when automatic upload is enabled unless the movie happens to end up using both an even height and even width number when automatically resized.
Anyway can you please add something to the code to either subtract or add 1 pixel in case of an odd number please? It shouldn't be too hard using an 'if' statement
Cheers for the mod btw, works well other than this minor bug.
Yes we ran into this issue when coding the module. I'm not sure why ffmpeg cares but we usually have to play with the numbers a bit before saving our transcode settings for those few movies we've had issue with.
If I crack open the code ever again, I'll take it into consideration.
There will always be...

Could you please tell me what file to insert this ugly piece of code in to fix the issue -
Obviously the code divides both the the dimensions (width and height) by 2 and looks for a remainder not equal to 0, meaning an odd number was found. If this is the case, 1 is deleted from the offending dimension to give an even number... problem solved
So what file sets these video dimension variables for ffmpeg to use? Is it in ffmpeg module or transcode?
