Release Notes: Uploader 2.0.0
Product Release: April 7, 2014
Release Notes Updated: April 2, 2014
Release 2.0.0 is a major new release of the Uploader, with significant improvements specifically in the area of video encoding.
• A new “Highest” video encoding setting which results in the video from the gallery or camera being uploaded “as-is” with no encoding.
• The attributes for the Low, Medium and High video encoding settings have been made more reasonable, allowing those settings to be used more often. Basically they call for the video attributes to be the same as the gallery or camera source, but with just variations in encoding bit rate (8 Mbps for High; 4 Mbps for Medium, 2 Mbps for Low).
• Adds ability to have custom video encoding settings, including the ability to save encoding settings as named “presets” which can then be selected for individual uploads. This offers the user finer control of the video encoding. The settings than can be controlled and formed into presets are: bit rate, frame rate, keyframe interval, scaling the size by percent, specifying height and/or width, and specifying the file type of the output (mov, mp4, m4v).
• A video shot with the camera or selected from the Photos gallery now shows an actual thumbnail of the video rather than the generic “filmstrip” image, allowing the user to confirm that the correct video is selected.
• All videos shot with the in-app camera are now saved in the gallery at full resolution, regardless of the encoding settings in force for the upload.
• Default rates for phone and WiFi networks have been raised to 2 Mbps and 50 Mbps, respectively; the overall max rate is now 100 Mbps.
• iOS 7 is now fully supported.
