Recent updates that happened on the backend of Arreya regarding videos. Our video encoder was just increased in both available Memory and CPU to boost the speed of our encodings.
Additionally, we have added a feature to our encoder to play the videos on ‘fastboot’. The fastboot setting on the backend means that it sets the index of the video to the beginning of the file, by default. This setting allows all or most videos to start playing before the Chrome-box or other device needs to cache the video.
Depending on the size of the video, you might see some delays as the video will still need to load into memory to start playing.
