Encoding Encoder Releases

Latest Releases

Date

Version

Beta

1/14/2020

2.37.0

Added

Fixed

  • Insertable Content no longer requires to have the same sample aspect ratio as the livestream. Additional requirement for Insertable Content: video stream must be at position 0 of the movie file.
  • Fixed bug which caused encoding to fail when setting stream conditions on Per-Title template streams.
  • Fixed an issue with audio codec detection on specific input files that lead to no audio and 2x video duration output.
  • Fixed bug that potentially caused stalled encodings in case that video filters were applied and several output renditions were encoded in parallel.

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

Stable

12/17/2019

2.36.0

Added

  • Support Image Overlay for live encodings. The specified image will replace the ingested video of the live stream for the defined time. Audio will be muted.
  • Support concatenation for different resolution inputs
    • Specify AspectMode when adding a concatenated input stream
  • Support for custom XML in PlayReady DRM WRM header added for DASH (playReady -> additionalInformation)
  • Trimming for Dolby Vision mezzanine files is now supported
  • H.265/HEVC 2pass and 3pass encoding jobs will process up to 10% faster
  • Enhanced detection of open GOP files to correctly handle them.

Fixed

  • CC to WebVTT conversion was uncompliant after one hour when appendOptionalZeroHour was set to true
  • There has been a potential stalling condition related to big output configurations (e.g. when excessive thumbnails creation was enabled).
  • HDR-10 encoding jobs with big output configurations where likely to stall in previous versions.
  • TS descriptor for E-AC-3 audio codecs is now correctly set

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

12/3/2019

2.35.1

Fixed

  • Improved analyzing of input for fail-fast in case erroneous DTS and unsupported open-GOP files

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

12/3/2019

2.35.0

Added

Fixed

  • Per-Title is now supported for Dolby Vision workflows.
  • In the concatenation workflow, if more than 10 inputs were provided, encoding produced incorrect output.

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

11/19/2019

2.34.0

Added

  • Added native support for Azure Blob output. This makes the additional transfer step unnecessary.
  • Added support for output of Dolby Vision and non Dolby Vision output streams in a single encode

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
  • Per-Title is not supported for Dolby Vision

11/5/2019

2.33.0

Added

Fixed

  • Encodings using enhanced watermark filter might have failed before when setting opacity and PERCENTS as unit.
  • Fixed a bug, that caused a failure during retries for uploading files.
  • A special log redirection in the encoder could have led to stalles in previous versions.
  • Fixed a SegFault that occured related to cluster communication.

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.
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
  • Per-Title is not supported for Dolby Vision

10/29/2019

2.32.0

Added

  • AVC/H.264 2-pass and 3-pass encoding jobs are now up to 12% faster
  • HEVC/H.265 2-pass and 3-pass encoding jobs are now up to 12% faster

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
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available

10/24/2019

2.31.0

Added

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
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available

10/22/2019

2.30.0

Added

  • Added possibility to add (black) padding sequences (concatenation -> paddingBefore / paddingAfter) between input streams inside a concatenation input stream
  • Restructured distribution and scheduling components for efficiency which will enable faster encoding turnaround speeds in the following releases.

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
  • S3 role-based output for segmented muxings: No upload verification available
