Kollaborate Encoder 1.3

Compatibility notes:
  • libav support has been removed. If you don't have ffmpeg installed please follow the steps in the installation guide to install it.
  • ImageMagick is now an optional but recommended dependency. Follow the installation guide to install it.

  • Better support for multi-track audio files
  • Kollaborate Server now sends the timecode to the encoder instead of the encoder detecting it from the file, allowing you to change the timecode from the Metadata page and have the encoder respect it when burning in timecode overlays

  • Fixed a log error occurring at startup
  • Removed libav support
