Encoding Encoder Releases

Latest Releases

Date

Version

Beta

6/30/2020

2.48.0

Added

  • Allow manual restart of live encodings in state FINISHED or ERROR
  • Enabled restart of live encodings if the encoder is unresponsive due to an instance failure (hardware, software, network issue etc.). This will lead to the live encoding being started on an instance with a new IP address.
  • Improved download speed of GCS Service Account input up to 15x
  • Added option to set suggestedPresentationDelay, minimumUpdatePeriod and availabilityStartTimeMode to the DashManifests when starting a live encoding

Fixed

  • Fixed a bug which prevented the creation of Per-Title encodings in combination with h.265, BroadcastTS and AutoRepresentations.
  • Fixed a bug in the parameter set signaling of segmented TS outputs. The parameter sets were signaled with a 3 byte start code (0x00 0x00 0x01) where according to the standards the start code must be 4 bytes (0x00 0x00 0x00 0x01).
  • A possible stall situation with high-bitrate input files when quality metrics are enabled has been fixed
  • Fixed a stall situation caused by a high amount of logs produced in a small amount of time
  • Fixed an issue where the publishTime in a SegmentTimeline DASH Manifest might be updated, although the content of the manifest hasn't changed
  • Fixed webm segments content-type detection.
  • When using ProgressiveWebM with manifestType DASH_ON_DEMAND and DRM, the first 5 seconds are also encrypted now.
  • Fixed an encoding job error when thumbnail width or height was not a multiple of 4.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available

2.47.2

Changed

  • When using ProgressiveWebM with manifestType DASH_ON_DEMAND and DRM, the first 5 seconds are also encrypted now.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • Encoding jobs will fail if the thumbnail width or height is not a multiple of 4

6/8/2020

2.47.1

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue where the publishTime in a SegmentTimeline DASH Manifest might be updated, although the content of the manifest hasn't changed
  • Resolved an internal condition where the encoder might stall while processing content

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • Encoding jobs will fail if the thumbnail width or height is not a multiple of 4

6/3/2020

2.47.0

Fixed

  • A possible stall situation with input chunks (GOPs) of a size of about 2 GB has been fixed and the stabililty for even larger chunks has been improved.
  • Fixed a bug in the parameter set signaling of segmented TS outputs. The parameter sets were signaled with a 3 byte start code (0x00 0x00 0x01) where according to the standards the start code must be 4 bytes (0x00 0x00 0x00 0x01).

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • The encoder might stall on certain conditions. Please use the next hotfix version.
  • Encoding jobs will fail if the thumbnail width or height is not a multiple of 4

Stable

2.46.2

Fixed

  • Fixed an encoding job error when thumbnail width or height was not a multiple of 4

Known Issues

  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available

5/19/2020

2.46.0

Added

  • Added support for stream conditions for checking the video rotation metadata
  • Enable timecode-track trimming based on the Quicktime timecode track in input files
  • Added upload verification of segmented muxings for Azure Storage

Fixed

  • Fixed a rare bug that caused the failure of a progressive TS muxing due to restrictions of the underlying operating system
  • Fixed encoding failures for muxings with DROP_MUXING stream condition mode and multiple streams with one of them being removed by stream conditions
  • The encoder might stall on certain conditions. Please use the next hotfix version.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • Encoding jobs will fail if the thumbnail width or height is not a multiple of 4

5/5/2020

2.45.0

Added

  • Optimized memory utilization and enhanced resiliency against memory errors

Fixed

  • Fixed a crash for Zixi live input after a restart. Discontinuity occurrence right at the beginning of the stream or after a restart request generated a crash. This is handled correctly now.
  • Fixed an issue where fMP4 last audio segment was sometimes missing, as it consisted of only 1 audio frame and was incorrectly encoded into next-to-last segment.
  • Fixed a bug that failed an encoding with CEA-608/708 captions from a separate input stream in specific cases
  • Improved error resiliency for decoding audio streams for live encodings.
  • Fixed the encodedBytes for progressive muxings with multiple streams in the encoding statistic endpoint for the muxings items.
  • Fixed a bug in the Per-Title logic for fixed resolutions with bitrate constraints, where a fixed resolution between two fixed resolutions with bitrate constraints was not handled properly.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • Encoding jobs will fail if the thumbnail width or height is not a multiple of 4

4/24/2020

2.44.2

Fixed

  • Fixed bug that when using short input files with Progressive WebM muxings and DASH On-Demand manifests the resulting manifests might contain the wrong information for the referenced streams and muxings

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available

4/21/2020

2.44.1

Fixed

  • Support for Burn-in DVB subtitles that are relative to the input resolution instead of subtitle decoding context resolution

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3, Akamai NetStorage or Azure Blob output.
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
