12.07.2019PresetsThe new version of Transcoding presets NEW

The transcoding process is completely redesigned with many new options and new transcoding preset structure. Audio encoding is performed independently from video encoding and audio bitrates are not tied to video bitrates anymore. The default encoding formats are M4V and M4A in separate files with MP4 generated optionally with full control over muxing of video and audio tracks.

Transcoding preset has 3 new sections with some settings moved from the Encoding section and many new ones.

  • Video encoding - section contains all video encoding related settings. Additionally, there are conditions for the particular video track to be generated - source video resolution, minimum and maximum bitrate.
  • Audio encoding - section contains all audio encoding related settings. Added new options to select audio codec and channel configuration, and conditions for the particular audio track to be generated - source audio codec, channel configuration, minimum and maximum bitrates. 
  • File packages - section contains the definitions of the output file packages. All output files are grouped into packages which are used for the splitting of outputs for external upload and for the generation of playback manifests for different scenarios. Muxing of video, audio and subtitle tracks is defined here, as well as the set of files included in each of the packages. Similar files are generated only once regardless of the number of packages the file is included in.

With this update, we added support for easy integration of additional future output types. All existing types are now available separately for inclusion into file packages. The recently added Elemental SMIL manifest files received custom-defined fine naming patterns in the configuration.

Fixed situation when the status of the media asset did not change properly after deletion of some files.

17.06.2019PresetElemental Delta SMIL generationNEW

New output file format - Elemental Delta packager compatible SMIL file, that works as a manifest to list all video bitrates, audio tracks, and subtitles.

Temporarily, before the new improved transcoding presets will be introduced, this file is generated as part of M4V/M4A package that includes SRT subtitle output and SMIL manifest. Please note that file names in the SMIL are hard coded and follow certain pattern that should be used in the Profile Upload File Patterns configuration:

  • M4V - [assetID]_v[bitrate].mp4
  • M4A - [assetID]_[language]_[audioCodec]_[audioChannels].mp4
  • SRT - [assetID]_[language].[ext]
  • SMIL - [assetID].[ext]
