Added

  • Added support for additional Sprite features so that they can be used for trick-play with DASH manifests. It's now possible to additionally specify the tile format (hTiles/vTiles), JPEG quality and a creation mode.

  • Added Image adaptation sets for DASH manifests with Sprite representations to enable video players to provide tiled thumbnails based on Sprites.

1.70.0

Fixed


1.69.0

Added

  • Updates in the internals of the TTML to WebVTT subtitle conversion:
    • Added support for basic styling in TTML to WebVTT subtitle conversion, configurable via WebVttConfiguration
    • Added support for ChunkedTextMuxing in TTML to WebVTT subtitle conversion: allows to output segmented WebVTT files

1.68.0

Added

Changed

  • Instead of failing during the encoding process
    • the Add Dolby Vision Metadata call will fail if enableHrdSignaling of the Stream's Codec Configuration is not set to true
    • the Create VP9 Codec Configuration call will fail if pixelFormat is not any of YUV420P, YUV422P, YUV440P, YUV444P, YUVJ420P, YUVJ422P, YUVJ440P, YUVJ444P, YUV420P10LE, YUV422P10LE, YUV440P10LE, YUV444P10LE
  • For TTML to WebVTT subtitle conversion with ChunkedTextMuxing setting cueIdentifierPolicy to OMIT_IDENTIFIERS is now mandatory

Fixed

  • Improved reliability of encoding startups

1.67.0

Changed

  • Improved resiliance against server or network errors for manifest uploads
  • DRM keys are now hidden in the response as default.
  • For SRT to WebVTT subtitle conversion with TextMuxing setting cueIdentifierPolicy to OMIT_IDENTIFIERS is now mandatory

1.66.0

Added

  • Region europe-west3 is now supported in GCE cloud

Changed

  • Encoder Versions below 2.53.0 are outdated for Azure cloud and will automatically be set to STABLE when executing an encoding.

Fixed

  • SDKs deserializing a WebVttSidecarFile as SidecarFile when retrieved via List Sidecars

1.65.0

Added

  • Broadcast TS muxings can now configure the rate for subtitle streams
  • Broadcast TS muxings can now configure the PID for subtite streams
  • After multiple, failed, consecutive attempts to deliver a pending notification to the endpoint of the configured Webhook, the Webhook will get auto-muted and no further notifications will be sent until the Webhook becomes reachable again and the customer has un-muted the notifications (see FAQ). When a Webhook is auto-muted, the customer will be immediately informed through an email.

  • V2 manifest generator (BETA)
    • The V2 manifest generator is a new implementation that is used for DASH and HLS manifests created as part of the encoding process (SMOOTH manifests are unchanged and supported as before).
    • The new manifest generator can be used by setting the ManifestGenerator parameter in the StartEncodingRequest to V2_BETA. The new manifest generator is currently in BETA and will receive new features frequently. To make use of the new generator, list the manifests you want to have generated automatically in the vodDashManifests and vodHlsManifests properties of the StartEncodingRequest.
    • Various bugs have been fixed when manifests were generated during the encoding.
    • HLS
      • Added support for Widevine and CENC Drm
      • Improved TARGET-DURATION calculation
      • AVERAGE-BANDWIDTH, CLOSED-CAPTIONS attributes are now set correctly
      • Improved precision of BANDWIDTH attribute
    • DASH
      • Fixed a bug where the channel layout was incorrectly chosen for some Audio AdaptationSets for DASH manifests.
