Encoding Encoder Releases

Latest Releases

Date

Version

8/23/2019

2.25.1

Fixed

  • Fixed copying of some codec configuration settings from Per-Title templates to Per-Title results
  • Fixed HLS manifest update issue for live encodings

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling
  • If more then one insertable content are scheduled consecutively, this could lead to audio/video sync issues when playing the insertable content. The normal live feed is not affected.

Beta

8/13/2019

2.25.0

Added

  • Added Live Encoding Events to provide feedback in case an error occurs during scheduling of insertable content
  • Doubled the decoding speed for J2K inputs
  • Live encodings are now more resilient to upload failures to cloud storage for audio segments

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling
  • If more then one insertable content are scheduled consecutively, this could lead to audio/video sync issues when playing the insertable content. The normal live feed is not affected.

8/2/2019

2.24.1

Fixed

  • Revert to previous J2K decoder because of stability issues with certain input files
  • Fixed increased turnaround times for BroadcastTS muxings

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling
  • If more then one insertable content are scheduled consecutively, this could lead to audio/video sync issues when playing the insertable content. The normal live feed is not affected.
  • When scheduling insertable content and there are errors with the content to insert, there is currently only minimal error feedback.

7/30/2019

2.24.0

Added

  • Added progress information for 2pass and 3pass analysis
  • Added insertable content for live streams to inject VoD files into the stream at scheduled times
  • Added the capability to add multiple CENC DRMs (FairPlay, Widevine, PlayReady) to HLS playlists

Fixed

  • Stability improvements for 3pass encoding, where an invalid internal state of the encoder led to a crash
  • Upload of segmented content to Generic S3 was failing in certain cases, e.g., with Scality

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3, Generic S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Broadcast TS muxing workflows suffer from increased turnaround times during the muxing stage
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling
  • If more then one insertable content are scheduled consecutively, this could lead to audio/video sync issues when playing the insertable content. The normal live feed is not affected.
  • When scheduling insertable content and there are errors with the content to insert, there is currently only minimal error feedback.

7/23/2019

2.23.1

Fixed

  • Fixed an issue that caused encodings to fail during the muxing step if a Progressive MP4 muxing without output in combination with DRM was configured

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Broadcast TS muxing workflows suffer from increased turnaround times during the muxing stage
  • Progressive MP4 with CBR encodings might have incorrect HRD buffer signaling

7/16/2019

2.23.0

Added

Fixed

  • Fixed handling of encrypted content sent to Zixi ingest
  • Fixed failing Per-Title encodes using PlayReady DRM encryption
  • Filler data are now retained in Progressive MP4 muxings when setting nalHrd=CBR in the H.264/AVC codec settings
  • Improved stability of 3-pass encodings
  • Added missing audio stream language metadata to TS container (HLS) when muxed together with video
  • Live encodings are now more resilient to upload failures to cloud storage

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • Broadcast TS and Progressive MP4 muxing workflows suffer from increased turnaround times during the muxing stage

7/2/2019

2.22.0

Added

  • CEA-608/708 to Sidecar WebVTT
  • Sidecar TTML to Sidecar WebVTT
  • Added variableMuxRate, initialPresentationTimeStamp and initialProgramClockReference to Broadcast TS muxing
  • Added generation of BIF output
  • Added additional properties for programNumber, pmt, and pcr to TS muxing
  • Improved timeout handling when downloading files from HTTP(s) storage to prevent stalling
  • Provides better turnaround times for encoding jobs with several output renditions now also for non 4k content

Fixed

  • 4K input content might stall during the encoding phase when the duration of the input is less than 15 seconds
  • When setting a different FPS for the output than the FPS of the input stream plus additionally configuring minKeyframeInterval and/or maxKeyframeInterval, this let to incorrect GOP sizes before.
  • Deinterlacing DVCProHD content sometimes let to bad results as internally the field parity of the source was not correctly detected.
  • Muxing of AC-3 audio streams now work correctly for MP4 muxing with a fragmentDuration set.

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output

6/18/2019

2.21.1

Fixed

  • Muxing of an E-AC-3 stream to fMP4 was failing in case the last segment was very short

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • 4K input content might stall during the encoding phase when the duration of the input is less than 15 seconds

6/18/2019

2.21.0

Added

  • Added parameter interval to the Thumbnails endpoint to create thumbnails every x seconds
  • Provides better turnaround times for encoding jobs, especially with 4k content and several output renditions
  • Enable muxing of E-AC-3 audio streams with BroadcastTS

Fixed

  • Improved writing of audio backup for SRT and Zixi live ingests after a disconnect.
  • Several stability improvements for 4k encoding jobs

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
  • 4K input content might stall during the encoding phase when the duration of the input is less than 15 seconds

6/4/2019

2.20.1

Fixed

  • Thumbnails and Sprites might have failed when not using GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output and the thumbnail position is out-of-bound

Known Issues

  • Per-Title encodings only work with GCS, S3 or Akamai NetStorage output
