Set mp4 as main file after encoding

Jan 5, 2010 at 10:35 AM

I'm running the August PKS with Encoder 3.

At the moment if an AVI file, or similar, is uploaded it is automatically converted to an mp4.  However, the 'main' file is still listed as the AVI, which means the silverlight player or iPods can't play the podcast.  If I click edit podcast and using the silverlight file upload app I can set the mp4 as the main file.  The silverlight player and iPods can then play the video.

Is it possible to get the mp4 set as the main file once it has been created by the encoder?

Hi Daniel,

For the mp4 file to be set as the main file, the code for the Media Encoder Service will have to be modified.

Basically you will have to udpate the code where the NFSXmlBlob column is being updated by the service.

Hope this helps.
