We do have a somewhat urgent situation here:
On January 1st a campaign is going to start in DE-WP, based on videos which we uploaded in Commons. We are expecting at least 1.000 page views of the Wiki-page which includes the videos.
It seems that there are some performance problems with playing the videos (interruptions or not starting at all). They are all webm files and should have been converted properly. I am talking about all video files in the category: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Neue_Ehrenamtliche
This task is very likely linked with T153488: Commons video transcoders have over 6500 tasks in the backlog.
Does anyone have an idea on this? We want to avoid to use another platform than Commons.
