Hello Vangelis

I'll make the amendments you suggest. The reason for flashaacstd is that 
I have used gip for a while and at one stage the default was not aac and 
that is what I then preferred. It worked, it still does so it is a 
legacy that has been ignored.

I did try dashhigh and it did seem to be much slower to download 
(though, of course, the file is larger). Before I make that change I 
need to establish whether my player will handle the format as I'd like 
to avoid having to transcode separately for files for the player.

Thank you for you 2p - worth at least double that!
