Encoding REST API Services

1.75.0

Added

  • If we cannot configure VM instances the api returns now more detailed error messages regarding the root cause of a "Scheduling failed" for Cloud Connect customers .

Changed

Fixed

  • Improved the SCTE35 cue tags insertion so the time frame between the cue tags is always bigger or equal to the configured cue duration.
  • Previously it was possible, that encodings started with prewarmed encoder pools did not use a prewarmed instance even though it was available
  • Fixed a concurrency issue which could lead to invalid state when calling start on prewarmed encoder pools in quick succession

1.74.0

Added

  • 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

  • Fixed an issue which led to a cascade of scheduling failed error

1.73.0

Added

  • Added targetDurationRoundingMode property on HLS manifest, which defines the rounding mode for the target duration (normal or upward rounding).

Fixed

  • 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.

1.72.0

Changed

  • Improved stability for encodings on Google Cloud.

Fixed

  • 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.

1.71.0

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
