    • Added support for social media sharing capabilities.
    • Added support for closed captioning.
    • Added support for replay at the end of video playback.
    • Added click support for video seeking.
  • Improved performance when searching metadata in SPS
    In Personal Setup , in the Browser group, the option Include UDF's (User-Defined Fields) in Search is now deselected (off) by default for all user accounts to improve system performance for most metadata searches that you run.
    If most of your metadata searches benefit from including user-defined fields, you can select this option to turn it on. As an alternative, use Advanced Search to allow for a more directed and faster search than including all user-defined fields.
eVideo
  • Added closed captioning support to the new Universal_HTML5_Video_Social viewer, by way of WebVTT files.
  • Master Video is now excluded from any Adaptive Video Set.
    Previously, the master MP4 or F4V source file was automatically added to the system-generated Adaptive Video Set. As a result, these large master source files sometimes caused video playback problems. Now, when you apply a series of encoding presets to the master video, you can expect to see an Adaptive Video Set without the master source file.
  • New Adaptive Video Encoding (16:9 or 4:3) .
    This new option combines all five 16:9 Adaptive Video encoding presets and all five 4:3 Adaptive Video encoding presets into one master encoding preset list. When you upload your video using this new option, it automatically applies the correct encoding presets to match the aspect ratio of your source video. (This setting replaced the previous Adaptive Video encoding presets.)
