I apologize  for the mess I caused with the transcode update. I'm
currently finishing the testing and building of transcode-1.1.7 which
is the latest version of the old transcode, I've cherry picked patches
from all the distros that have had it for a few years now, the only
distribution that was still on 1.1.5 was openSUSE/Packman. This is a
mature well tested transcode that I will submit in due course today.
Humble apologies,
Dave Plater
