What’s New

  • #10842 (new) (Flussonic UI) The transcoder now prevents you from saving conflicting setting if you use Nvidia NVENC. It concerns levels (the list of levels now contains only allowed values that depend on the width, height, and FPS).
  • #14699 (new) (Flussonic) Passing Closed Captions (CEA-708) from SDI sources to output streams.
  • #14850 refactored internal session handling to make more smooth and asynchronous backend request and update events
  • #14899 (new) (Flussonic UI) We are working towards displaying help on the UI screens.
  • #15158 (new) (Flussonic) The transcoder allows you to burn the time into a stream. The feature supports an offset of the time relative to the time of the Flussonic server, and the place on the screen where the time will be displayed. Learn more
  • #11701 (improved) (Flussonic UI) At attempts to upload a file that contains prohibited characters, the UI shows a corresponding message now.

  • #9079 (fixed) (Player) The elements of the player embed.html?dvr=true are now displayed so that they all fit the player’s window.
  • #12035 (fixed) (Flussonic UI) When you edit a stream source on the Input tab and change the protocol (such as hls://), Flussonic correctly removes the options (if any) that cannot be used with the new protocol.

For any related error that occurs in Conax, Flussonic now issues the event ‘drm_key_fetch_error’. To avoid errors after you turned off a DRM system, you can use the new option ‘systems’ where you specify which DRMs must be used. For example, ‘drm conax systems=widevine,playready;’ Learn more
  • #15019 (fixed) (Flussonic) Now Flussonic issues a correct message if the user tries to use different modes for transcoding several streams on Nvidia NVENC.
