Run cleanupTranscodes.php for current midi files
Closed, ResolvedPublic


We have pre-exisisting midi files, that have now become 'transcodeable'. In order for the audio player to work however, it does need the derivatives, otherwise it has no source to play, as these are not generated on the fly.

Therefore cleanupTranscodes.php need to be run, so that these files can be put on the transcoding queue. The description file pages might have be be purge first, before the derivatives can be queued ?

Low priority, as files were not playable before and thus not widely used in articles and new files are automatically put on the queue. Manual queueing is possible by purging file description page and then manually triggering the transcode at the bottom of the page.

I presume you mean requeueTranscodes.php?

In which case, we probably want to run mwscript extensions/TimedMediaHandler/maintenance/requeueTranscodes.php --wiki=commonswiki --audio --missing --throttle...

For Commons yes

Well, no. The script hasn't actually finished running for commons yet

T226718: Add option to filter by file extension/img_minor_mime in requeueTranscodes.php is done and merged... It might be worth running it elsewhere till .12 is out, and/or we can backport it to .11 next week

So the command is now

mwscript extensions/TimedMediaHandler/maintenance/requeueTranscodes.php --wiki=commonswiki --audio --mime=audio/midi --missing --throttle

So we can run that in foreachwiki

foreachwiki extensions/TimedMediaHandler/maintenance/requeueTranscodes.php --audio --mime=audio/midi --missing --throttle
