Ingestion Release Notes

New Language and Framerate Options for Closed Caption Ingestion (June 8, 2017)

If you use manifest files to ingest closed caption files via the Ooyala Ingestion Service (OIS), you can now optionally specify the language and framerate of the closed caption file. See Ingesting Closed Caption Files for details.

New Ingestion Dashboard (May 10, 2017)

The Backlot UI added an Ingestion Feed Activity tab that displays a read-only log of files submitted for ingestion to Backlot via the Ooyala Ingestion Service (OIS). This dashboard displays the name and type of the submitted file, its processing status, and other related information. You can filter the view to narrow search results. To see this tab, you must log into Backlot as a user with upload only access. For details, see Viewing the Ingest Log in Backlot.

XML Manifest Validation in OIS v2.5 (Feb 6, 2017)

For OIS 2.5 users, the system has been enhanced to allow unsupported elements and tags in XML manifest files. As long as the required Ooyala elements and tags (ooyala.dtd) are present, the system logs allows the ingestion process to continue without the process failing. Previously, unsupported tags in a manifest would cause an ingestion failure. See XML Manifest File.
