Xamarin.iOS Version: 184.108.40.2068
Unable to create a `AVAssetWriterInput` that has a null for the `AVVideoSettingsCompressed` parameter due to ambiguous parameter, between AVVideoSettingsCompressed and AudioSetting since both parameters are named "mediaType".
var assetWriterInput = new AVAssetWriterInput(mediaType: AVMediaType.Video, outputSettings: null);
The call is ambiguous between the following methods or properties:
Null/Nil is valid for this parameter:
>Passing nil for output settings instructs the input to pass through appended samples, doing no processing before they are written to the output file.
This is a compiler error, not a runtime/API error. It simply means the compiler has more than one choice of overload where `null` could be legally used and needs help to decide which one to use.
Just provide enough information to the compiler, e.g.
> var assetWriterInput = new AVAssetWriterInput (
> mediaType: AVMediaType.Video,
> outputSettings: (AudioSettings) null);
and it will work.
