Streaming Video bits and bytes

Now witness the power of this fully operational Death st….. oops, I mean streaming server. Quietly  went ‘live’ July 1. So far, 350 audio file and 844 video files have been uploaded. Some outstanding issues:

  • some submitted pathological  files feature video tracks and audio tracks of differing lengths. JWplayer plays to end of shortest (or length of video, hard to tell which since it s invariably the video which is shorter) causing the audio track to get clipped
  • some submitted pathological  files feature very low bitrates, especially screencasts of PowerPoint, which have solid backgrounds and little motion. When bitrate is below 600 kbps , transcoding yields less than satisfactory results
  • multiple back to back submissions try to process in parallel , developing a queuing system to process sequentially
