We’ve released the Field59 Video Manager 2.38 update. Here are the latest improvements:
As more content is consumed through connected TVs, OTT devices and other third-party platforms (which may have accompanying sound systems), it’s important to have good sound quality. So we’ve increased our audio bitrate for encoded videos to CD-level audio quality, which should improve the listening experience.
Relevancy now available for API search
Previously, search requests using our Search API only returned results by date. We’ve added a new parameter, “sorting”, to allow results to return the most relevant results. (Relevancy is determined by a weighted formula that takes into account where in the video metadata a search term matches.) Please see our Search API documentation for full details on how to use sorting and other API parameters.
