Lossless Intermediate Decoding
Anyone who has encoded his fair share of video is all too familiar with pesky encoding errors for no apparent reason. We have taken a major step towards reducing “unknown” encoding errors by introducing an intermediate encoding step which decodes the source video into a lossless format prior to encoding into the format you requested. We are extremely excited about the results of our initial testing of this feature as it has successfully encoded almost all of the problem source video we have thrown at it. To utilize this feature add <two_pass_decoding>1</two_pass_decoding> to the format fields of your API request.
