Due to abusive transcode resets, the queue has increased from low 2k+ the day before yesterday, to 2800+ yesterday, then 3100+ now.
Many of the transcodes will run for 8 hours for nothing, as they will fail due to timeout.
The issue was discussed on IRC and I issued a note at T153488#2920246. However the increase in queue did not stop. @Dereckson said there are no server logs to check to find out who's doing this. As a short term measure, the right shall be unassigned to prevent further abuse.
For emergency uses, the right shall be kept for confirmed user group. Admins can assign the group to themselves or other users in emergency.
