We are excited to let you know that Amazon Elastic Transcoder has added multiple parallel processing enhancements that will improve your experience when running transcoding jobs.

The improvements include:

  • Processing each output of a job simultaneously, so multiple output jobs complete as quickly as single input jobs.
  • Using parallel file transfer to improve performance in and out of S3.
  • Increasing the default number of jobs that run parallel to decrease the likelihood that your jobs will wait to begin processing. The new defaults are listed here.

You can learn more about Amazon Elastic Transcoder’s new enhancements by visiting our recent post on the Amazon Web Services Blog. To get started with Amazon Elastic Transcoder using the API or the AWS Management Console, please refer to the detail page.
