Kollaborate Server 2.0.2 - MXF, FLV and AVI recognition, various other tweaks

Kolloaborate Server 2.0.2 is now out, a minor update to our self-hosted in-house cloud workflow platform. (These changes have already made their way to the cloud version of the site.)

The biggest change in this release is that MXFs, FLVs and AVIs are recognized as video files so thumbnails will be generated for them and if you have Kollaborate Encoder these files will automatically be converted to MP4s for playback in the browser. This only applies to files uploaded from now on.

Other changes

  • When drawing over a video in full screen near to the right edge, hold down shift to prevent the comment overlay from appearing
  • Limited the screen area required to trigger the full screen comment overlay on larger monitors
  • Fixed an issue where annotations couldn't be submitted
  • If no other encoders are responding, send to the first available encoder even if the current file is longer than the encoder's maximum duration
  • Fixed an issue where deleting a file would result in it still being selected invisibly, producing an error if you tried to delete something else
  • Fixed an issue where clients would try to reconnect too often if the socket server was offline
  • Double quotes are now prohibited from file titles
  • Reduced logging when processing webhook events
  • Several fixes to thumbnail generation
  • Various other bug fixes and tweaks

This is a free update for all customers with valid maintenance and upgrade instructions are available in the installation guide included in the download shown after logging in.
