JW-OAS: should be able to specify if preroll video is scaled or not

when playing a preroll flv that does not match the size of the current player window, the flv is scaled to best fit the window. on large player windows, the results can be pretty ugly.
as it seems there is no way to prevent scaling for prerolls.

After investigation it seems that the elements of the original playlist, after manipulation by OAS, have a scaling value that is an Object rather than a string.
rather than the expected:
The Inline Ad elements are properly constructed but always set to 'scale'.

My previous comment is actually referring to the Flowplayer implementation.

Sorting for FP 0.5.0 RC2

Sorted for FP 0.5.0 RC2 - ads can now be scaled if they have the scaling values in the VAST response and the appropriate scaling option is turned on in the config - e.g.
See linear interactive ad examples for this working in action. Also scaling setting on playlist confirmed to be working properly in this RC (by the way, the clip.scaling value is an Object of MediaType as per the way that Flowplayer do it on the API)
Looking into JW scaling - not sure it's possible. Asking..

Talking with the Longtail folks Thursday to work out how to add this for JW

Have implemented for JW 5.x - just confirming though that the options are right... and the JW API refers to "image" scaling not video so I'm not 100% sure it works yet
