Is 4:3 the only format for QO-100 net or is 16:9 now allowed?

I have been experimenting with a PLUTO F5OEO firmware and OBS.
Still learning how to use OBS but haven't worked out how to switch between deferent aspect ratios quickly.
My main operating mode is 16:9.

Hi Martin

Either 4:3 or 16:9 is acceptable. I currently use 16:9 as it does look better on the streamer.

The important thing is that everybody uses DVB-S2, QPSK, 333kS, FEC 2/3, H264. Most players will then cope with any image dimensions, although they might benefit from restarting to get the aspect ratio correctly displayed.

Look forward to seeing your new setup demonstrated tomorrow evening.

Partly as a test of my capture setup and partly as an excuse to show of how well Ryde does on things like the net I recorded it yesterday.

Basic setup is a Pi4 running my Ryde dev build connected to an LKV373a, I then capture the data off the network using netcat and uploaded the 6.3GB TS file directly to youtube, no transcoding required.

The curious can watch it here:
