Encoding Encoder Releases

Latest Releases

Date

Version

Beta

2/21/2019

2.12.3

Added

  • Enabled Live-to-VoD for Zixi ingest streams

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug where encodings could fail when trimming is applied in combination with long GOP sizes of the input file
  • Fixed decoding of JPEG2000 assets where our encoder detected a wrong source FPS
  • Improved turnaround time of 3pass encodes when doing lots of encodes in parallel

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • VP9 in combination with 3-pass does not hit the target bitrate, please use 2-pass instead

2/15/2019

2.12.2

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where an upload to Akamai NetStorage failed. The initialization for calculating the MD5 hash crashed when uploading a large amount of files concurrently.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • VP9 in combination with 3-pass does not hit the target bitrate, please use 2-pass instead

2/13/2019

  • Added I-Frame Playlist for Progressive MP4 and Progressive TS, for both unencrypted and encrypted output
  • Added COMPLEXITY_RANGE as new Per-Title bitrate selection mode
  • Added support for AC-3 and HEVC for Broadcast TS muxings
  • Added option to only deinterlace interlaced frames (frameSelectionMode on the deinterlace filter)

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue with audio tracks in the concatenation workflow
  • Fixed an issue with 3pass where our encoder generated invalid NAL units
  • Fixed an issue where visible decoding errors could occur for RTMP ingests

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • VP9 in combination with 3-pass does not hit the target bitrate, please use 2-pass instead

2.11.0

Added

  • Redundant RTMP input
  • Per-Title with fixed resolutions and bitrates constraints
  • Improved error messages when downloading of subtitle files fail
  • Improved error message when authentication with output storage fails when uploading thumbnails or sprites
  • Added support for multiple audio streams in Broadcast TS muxings

Fixed

  • Improved download speed from S3 storages with role-based authentication
  • Reduced delay of writing backup packets for live streams with RTMP ingest
  • Fixed a/v sync issue for H.264 files that contain open as well as closed GOPs
  • Fixed an issue where interlaced MP4 files would result in an error during encoding
  • Fixed a bug that would lead in an encoding error for 2pass/3pass when changing FPS

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS or S3 output
  • VP9 in combination with 3-pass does not hit the target bitrate, please use 2-pass instead
