Flussonic Media Server 22.08

01.08.2022

Мы выпустили Flussonic Media Server 22.08.

Flussonic Media Server

Event и VOD манифесты совмещены в одной ссылке, теперь Flussonic автоматически финиширует Event-плейлисты: пока текущее время попадает на запрошенный интервал - Flussonic будет возвращать манифест типа EVENT, а после - уже VOD. Отдельные ссылки на EVENT и VOD больше не нужны, можно вставить одну ссылку на сайт или приложение.

Запускать Flussonic в Kubernetes стало удобнее, для этого мы добавили целый ряд улучшений: хранение секретов в хранилище k8s, передача конфигурации через переменные окружения, чтение конфигурации из файлов вложенных в директорию, а для мониторинга доступны liveness и readiness эндпоинты. Поделитесь своим опытом запуска Flussonic в k8s с нами support@flussonic.com.

Ознакомьтесь с полным списком улучшений и исправлений ниже и обновите ваши серверы как можно скорее!
