          Hello Sub User fans!

          We’ve recently added a feature that will allow the sub user accounts to log in via http://www.encoding.com/login.

          You can view, add track jobs for each sub user via a seperate login for each account that you have created via the API.

          Though we haven’t completed the outlined wish list, we wanted to mention that you can use our online toolset with each individual account.

          Thanks for voting!

        • Add AAC codec format for Audio selection

          I need to convert a .mov file to a .3gp but unfortunately, there's no AAC codec format for your Audio selection (only AMR-NB).

          Your assistance is greatly appreciated in this matter.

          Thanks,
          Yonnas

            • Add support for custom values for cache-control max-age header when saving encoded output to amazon

              - files created on amazon s3 have a default max-age= (24 hours). this affects how long they are cached on the user machine and by the cloudfront cdn.

              - you can get better video load time performance for end users if you set a higher value for the max-age. I'd like to set it to max-age=864000 (10 days) so the video files remain cached on the CDN edge location for a longer period of time.

              - the way to set the max-age for a file on s3 is including an http header called 'cache-control' when posting the file into s3

              • Include Output Format & Destination in GetStatus API Response

                The response of the GetStatus API does not include any fields that can help you match the task progress & status up against the requested format or destination. I would recommend you include both the Output format and the destination parameters within the <format> sections for each task.

                  Additional options for encoding.com de-interlacing. For example, out of Apple's Compressor, there are the following options:

                  • Blur: Blends the odd and even fields together. This setting gives more importance to temporal data and preserves motion better, but because individual frames consist of a composite of both frames, they don’t look good when you pause playback.
                  • Even: Keeps the even fields and ignores the odd fields, avoiding motion blur.

                      Site should allow you to set the duration for the logo watermark (instead of the entire duration).

                      • Add an aspect ratio flag to the video size options, to allow easy ratio preservation.

                        When the video options are added, using the preserve aspect ratio flag and *x0 or 0x* works, but having control over the aspect flag and have that intuitively adjust the size based on the dimension entered (width adjusting to heigh, or vice versa)

                            • Inform task id on Callback XML or format name in GetStatus method

                              When we call GetStatus (extended) method, every format have a task id, but the original callback XML doesn't delivers that information. That way, when I call GetStatus, I have the status of all requested formats, but can't distinguish one from another...

                              During an chat session with encoding.com they told me that GetStatus XML informs the formats in the same order they are requested in addMedia, but I have no way to know what order they were requested.

                              It would be usefull if we could link the two information. If GetStatus XML could return format name (eg. mp4, ogv, flv, etc...)…

                                  As it stands right now, it appears you only accept the "acl=xxx" param,

                                    • allow multiple users within an org to have their own encoding.com usernames, under the same account

                                      This will allow my developers to log on to the encoding.com website and review the detailed encoding queue and status of encodings using their own username (instead of asking for my username).

                                      • Add static move file tasks

                                        When tasks that move files are used (for example, from ftp to rackspace), include ability to also pick up preview images and srt files at the same time so they all move together. These files don't require processing, but do usually need to exist in the same place as the movie and today it is required to interface with rackspace as well as encoding.com or ftp to get everything there together.

                                        • Be able to use rackspace CDN without login/password

                                          With a reference to support ticket 5856.
                                          I suggest to modify the URL parsing engine to be able to cope with rackspace CDN addresses.
                                          At the moment you require login/password in the URL - this is a big security concern.
