In case you missed it, here are some recent software updates for our products.

Kollaborate Encoder 1.7 - Mar 6 2024

Note: This update requires a minimum of Kollaborate Server 3.7.2.

  • The Docker image now uses Ubuntu 22.04 and FFMPEG 6.1.1
  • Added extra configuration options to send additional flags to FFMPEG
  • Fixed an issue that could sometimes cause files to be converted multiple times
  • Fixed an issue that could cause complex overlay text to fail

  • Minor bug fixes, tweaks and optimizations

Kollaborate Server 3.7.2 - Mar 6 2024

Important: The Docker image is configured to convert the current database to your MariaDB version automatically. As such, we would recommend backing up the database before upgrading to any version as you may be unable to downgrade otherwise. You can download the current database as a .sql file from the Tools section of the Admin Area. We recommend doing this before copying the newer version's files over.
