26.02.2020RecordingsQuick recording shortcutNEWAdded button to quickly initiate channel recording from the channel list.
26.02.2020MediaFixed errors during uploadFIXImproved handling of errors. Process stops when a critical error is encountered instead of retrying. Also, when asset upload to the external server is in progress and the user changes the asset somehow that results in the deletion of asset files.
19.02.2020MediaIngest and transcoding queue improvementsFIXThe order of the files in the ingest and transcoding process is maintained according to the order in which the assets come into the respective process.
19.02.2020MediaIngest support for tar and tar.gz filesNEWFiles with tar or tar.gz extensions are unpacked first and then processed as regular asset files.
19.02.2020MediaImproved upload handlingNEWBetter upload error handling in case of incorrect/missing settings or non-responsible remote servers. Upload is limited to 5 retries and stopped after.
12.02.2020NotificationsFixed several errors and warning messagesFIXSome messages were misguiding. Fixed these.
12.02.2020MediaPrevent multiple upload processes for the assetFIXIt was possible to launch multiple upload processes in parallel for the same asset leading to inconsistency errors. Now it is not possible to have more than one upload process scheduled or running for the asset.
12.02.2020MediaCorrect reset of media during uploadFIXWhen media asset was reset during the upload process user received misguiding error messages and upload process was retried many times without success. Now the upload process fails and correct error is issued.

12.02.2020APIMediaManifest→update fixFIXMediaManifest→update function lost default manifest if not explicitly set. Now we maintain the current default manifest when it is not changed explicitly.
