Run a bot to reset missing video transcodes
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Followup to T100211 and other past problems with transcodes:

We need to bulk-fix all the transcodes that have been either accidentally removed or failed for some reason to begin with. I would recommend doing this with a client-side bot that can be rate-controlled and doesn't need server access.

Bot can hit the API methods for getting transcode list and for resetting individual transcodes.

Assigning to self. Will also need to re-run 360p and 480p .ogv transcodes (from T106995) and add 240p .ogv transcodes once enabled.

I've removed 120,000 successful (Vorbis to 720p+ WebM), cleared 370,000 failed transcodes and added 30,000 uninitialized transcodes to the job queue.

@Dispenser and services didn't explode ? I'm pleasantly surprised.
