So additional question…. is it possible to implement the script-based transcoding on Windows XP? Think I might have some Perl runtime support hanging around somewhere on the system from when I was still running SlimServer.

Theoretically, yeah… although it seems that popen doesn’t work right on win32, or there are problems associated with the fact that sockets aren’t *real* fds on win32.

I tried that as the first approach, and it didn’t work so hot. It could be done, but it would likely need a different ssc module that’s completely different than the existing one, using native windows exec functions (CreateProcess?) and dealing with windows files using the native apis (CreateFile, etc).

I think fixing the ffmpeg one would be actually quicker and easier.
