Improved validation for Per-Title configurations using multiple templates with fixed resolution, fixed bitrate and bitrate selection mode COMPLEXITY_RANGE: Encodings now fail fast if the difference between the minimum or the maximum bitrate of consecutive streams is smaller than the configured minimum bitrate step size.
Added support for Thumbnail Letter and Pillarboxing.
Supported aspect modes: CROP, PAD, STRETCH. More Details described in the API Calls:
Warning when creating or using a H264 Configuration with settings or a preset that is not compatible with the selected profile. adaptiveSpatialTransform=true only works with profile HIGH. bframes > 0, cabac = true, and weightedPredictionPFrames = true are only working with MAIN or HIGH.
For DASH manifests, containing Dolby audio renditions, the codecs attribute is not set on AdaptationSet level anymore but only on the Representation level. This also fixes a rare case of duplicate entries in the codecs attribute which could have led to device compatibility issues.
Added support for SCTE-35. When running a live encoding, calling this endpoint will trigger the insertion of cue tags in the provided HLS manifests and ads will be inserted. Note: this is an experimental feature.
Fixed an issue which led to a cascade of scheduling failed error
Added targetDurationRoundingMode property on HLS manifest, which defines the rounding mode for the target duration (normal or upward rounding).
A validation for live edge offset in HLS Manifests introduced with v1.72.0 could falsely fail, if a CC caption has been used as media stream.
Fixed incorrect audio manifest relative path when generating audio-only HLS manifest with MP4 muxing.
Improved stability for encodings on Google Cloud.
Added validation for Live Edge Offset in HLS Manifests: Live Edge Offset now has to be >= than the segment length of their assigned muxing
Fixed concurrency issue for manifest status updates from encoders (introduced in Encoder v2.75.0) that could lead to inconsistent status
Fixed manifest status endpoints (DASH, HLS and Smooth ) to return a spec conform servicetask property.
