2022 June

Date Description
07 Jun 2022 General Improvements
  • Improved the Data Quality of the "Playlist Type" and "Playlist" Dimensions:
    • Beginning on 5/24/22, the Playlist Type and Playlist Dimensions are being more fully populated for Embeds, including in cases where a relevant embed does not result in a play
    • The Embed count tallies the number of times a player has been set up on a page and will now let you segment by playlist
    • This change will allow you to track how often a playlist is loaded with a player and subsequently how often these convert into plays

Fixes
  • Fixed Social Push bug on posting videos to YouTube
  • Fixed a bug around duplicate key values for dynamic playlists custom param filtering in Management API v2

  • Fixed a bug around captions in MRSS Imports


2022 March

Date Description
10 Mar 2022 General Improvements
  • Updated the JWP Management API for the MRSS Imports POST action (Create an import) so that all of the "ingest_metadata" settings will be defaulted to true if it is undefined:
    • In the past, these were defaulted to false
    • Now, these need to explicitly be set to false if desired

    See Create an import for more information.

  • Updated the User Agent for resource retrieval on MRSS Imports to display JWP rather than a generic python library


2022 February

Date Description
23 Feb 2022 General Improvement
  • Custom Parameters can now be imported directly with videos imported by MRSS Feeds to make importing this metadata easier:
    • Custom Parameters can be specified to be added to all videos imported via a specific MRSS feed. When desired, these can use the default custom parameters set at the property level.
    • Custom Parameters can also be parsed from custom name-spaced fields on the MRSS feed to import custom parameters that differ for each video.

    See Set up a new import feed for more information.

27 Jan 2022 General Improvement
  • Dynamic Playlists created through the Management APIv2 has a new sort option for sorting by duration:
    • In the coming months, this will also be added as a new sort option for Dynamic Playlists created in the Dashboard

Fixes
  • Fixed an issue with the “View as Raw XML” link throwing an error for some MRSS feeds on the MRSS Import Page

  • Fixed an issue where “Copy to Property” from the Media Library Page would result in reduced resolution thumbnails instead of the highest quality thumbnail
13 Jan 2022 General Improvement
  • MRSS Imports page has been updated to make it easier for customers to setup and track status on their MRSS feeds to import new videos into the JWP platform:
    • Improvements were made to the page layout and design
    • Improvements were made to more frequently refresh the status of imported media

    See Set up a new import feed for more information.

Fixes
  • Fixed an issue where uploading an alternate audio track that contained surround-sound content and had a non-ASCII character in its display name resulted in HTTP 500 delivery errors.

  • Fixed an issue with MRSS Imports API PATCH calls where a PATCH call overwrote fields that were not included in the request.
