Transcoder Patch

Please be advised that a patch has been released which repairs issues reported by customers concerning playlist playback. All transcoders are currently being updated by script and users are encouraged to check their individual playlist settings as soon as possible. No other user action is required.

Reported Issue

Periodic and Sequential Playlists would not playback at the subscribed times or not at all


libxml2 compatibility issue.


After system update, the updated libxml2 library mangled the output from the event prioritizer feeding the transcoder with partial event information. Thusly all playlists were mis-prioritized and fallback went to the first playlist in the queue.


The transcoder was re-compiled in order to support extended xml features and pushed out to all servers. Each account with an active autodj is being re-configured and restarted by script.

Important Information

The transcoder update script was started on 01/19/2018 at 19:00 UTC and is expected to take two hours to complete on all systems. The script will automatically re-generate configuration files with their current settings, so users are encourage to verify playlist settings, but to take no other action until after 21:00 UTC or once the autodj (transcoder) has been restarted by the system or otherwise notified (i.e. facebook post) by the support team.
