Watchfolders and the new Agility

1. Submissions watchfolder works and delivers WMV and Quicktime to the appropriate servers.

2. Youtube watchfolder has been replaced with 3 watchfolders (1feature_h264,2standard_h264,3longplay_h264) the bumper and trailer have a low rumble and pops using the same file that was silent in the previous Anystream version. Called support at 4:40pm 8/4/2008. Awaiting Response.

3. I will document the submissions job as it is fully functional and the youtube job/folder as it works except for the bumper and trailer tomorrow.

4. Should we have a high and low res H.264 watchfolder?

-Target or CBR was set to 700 kbps for all three

-Mpeg-4 H.64's took 1 hr for a 27 minute clip.

-So far the Quicktime looks way better with dissolves and motion. More research is needed.
