Improved Video and Audio Publishing Script in Video Sharing Script.

  • 04 December 2012

Uploading and encoding videos and audio files from almost every video and audio format, generate highest possible quality output and make it streamable for the web is one of the most complex in web development effort. From first release 2007 we contineously working hard in highest priority on this areas and contineously improving our script to make this process fast, reliable, scalable and provide best possible results.

Until current release of video starter kit 7.1, we face tremendeous amount of challenges including.

  • Introducing new video formats and streaming concepts time to time starting journey from flash flv encoding and streaming now extended to diverse mp4, webm, m3u8 and other streaming formats with diverse approaches. 
  • Popularity of mobiles devices add more challenges for adopting strategies for better streaming approaches (html5, flash etc)
  • Time to time introducing rich user interfaces, jquery and other uploading file approaches.
  • Starting from ftp and now cloud storage and streaming become much popular source for media stoage on multiple servers.
  • And lots of other challenges time to time.

We continously working hard to tackle these challenges while introducing concepts which support almost every current standards. We sometime face tough time as addition of feature cause unstability in our product encoding phases.

Recent Changes:

In order to make it more stable and reliable we made some restrictions and addition of new features in current encoding script.

Addition includes

  • Now support chunk video and audio uploading. Allow video to split in small pieces and join it again at server level when reach. 
  • Support background processings
  • Improved sheduled publishing script.
Restriction includes
In order to make this complex process reliable we made some restrictions.
  • If direct video publishing enabled (process videos and audio files suddenly after uploading comples) then no cloud storage support available. Media files can only be store in local drives.
  • In case of direct video publishing, only background processing will be enabled directly to perform encoding in background while allow website to perform other operations. Still encoding status will be shown on page to indicate encoding happens.
  • In case of shedule publishing (unpublished videos to be published in sequence after specified time interval), cloude storage will be utilitze.
  • In shedule publishing, no background processing will be enabled. it will be normal encoding process.
To make process simpler, we removed traditional multi server video and audio management via FTP. Now ftp transfer is no longer supported. Now script completely target cloud storage.
 
Hope this article will help you understand complexity involve in this area and our implementational changes in new release. (ASP.NET Video Starter Kit 7.1)

You can add more options and update existing options based on your encoding settings.

How to enable encoding based on your selected settings?

You can just pass setting id as string or array list to media encoder class which is responsible for publishing videos. e.g if you want to allow script to encode 360p mp4 encoding, just add the following script in video uploader file.

ArrayList itags = new ArrayList();
itags.Add("5");encoder.iTags = itags;

e.g if you want to encode 360p mp4 video and mp3 audio file for listing audio as alternative source. do the following settings.

ArrayList itags = new ArrayList();
itags.Add("5");itags.Add("14");encoder.iTags = itags;

Once updated, rest of videos will be published based on your settings.

You can enable cloud storage to store published videos and audio files to cloud (builtin amazon s3 supported), you need to setup, enable cloud storage from control panel -> settings -> configurations -> cloud setting section  inorder to perform storage properly.

encoder.EnableCloudStorage = true;

You can delete source video after publishing by using the followng setting

 encoder.DeleteSource = true;

Hope this guide will help you to implement best possible approach for encoding high quality videos and audio files  via asp.net video starter kit 7.0 applicatioin.
