Make video resolution available over HTSP protocol
When using TVheadend in combination with XBMC, XBMC is unable to retrieve the height en width of the video picture.
But TVheadend has no trouble in retrieving this as it is able to show it in the log.
VDPAU for live tv in XBMC depends on the resolution of the video and i was wondering if it would be possible to make this information available over the HTSP protocol so VDPAU could be used in XBMC.

How do you expect this to work?
The widht/height of the video stream is encoded into the mpeg data. So when an application receives that mpeg data it can determine the width/height from that data. HTSP does nothing with the mpeg data that it receives from the source. It is passed unaltered to the HTSP client. And the client can do what it want's to do with it. It can even change resolution/aspect during the data stream.
How does XBMC determine the widht/height for other sources?
