At the wiki page for it states... "Your backend must have been compiled with "--enable-libx264 and --enable-libmp3lame" to support the H.264 video and MP3 audio used in the HLS streams generated by MythTV v0.25. Without those, you'll never get anything transcoded."
Ok since I am not getting any output when trying to use the live streams, I thought I should confirm that libx264 and libmp3lame support is actually compiled in to my copy of mythbackend:

If you have a minute, can you run "mythbackend --version" on your MythTV server, and paste the contents here? It would be helpful to see the output from some other installations, especially to know what platform and packager (or self-compiled?) is being used.
