Less "No Files Found" errors
On 25th of October, I deployed a new version of media.io that reduced the "No Files Found" error by around 18 %. The fix switched the previous cookie-based session handling to URL-based session handling which survives closing and opening the browser.
Improved URL Importing
Between the last post and the most recent release, the URL importing of media.io was improved and made much more robust. The code now handles "almost correct" URLs (for example URLs with un-encoded spaces in them) and is based on a much more robust asynchronous GET-after-HEAD design. Socket and read timeouts were also increased.
Support for .oga Files
media.io can now be used to convert OGA to MP3 and the other supported audio formats (Ogg Vorbis, WAV and WMA).
The amount of data transferred between clients and media.io's server was reduced.
More File Extensions accepted
media.io now accepts files it previously didn't, for example files without a recognized extension but with a dot.
Between 12th and 30th of November, I ran a split test featuring slightly different designs. The new design looks more modern and increased one performance metric by almost seven percent.
