We’ve just released v2.1.4 of OVP for Flash. This release contains the following changes:
1. Bug fixes:
2971161 - in Core : OVPConnection breaks NetConnection.Connect.Rejected
2968552 - in VASTHandler plugin : OVP Flash player with VAST plugin does not track ads (Note this is a partial fix and therefore the bug is still open. The plugin was modified to support tracking events. Impression and click-through events are not yet supported.)
2. Core - OvpDynamicNetStream was modified to provide more accurate stream switching reporting. Specifically, the pendingItemArray was removed and instead the class uses a pendingIndex member variable to more accurately reflect the rendering index.
3. Core - Improvements to the MetricsProvider class courtesy of Brent Smith and Viacom:
a) Includes a new smooth start algorithm which is optional and can take in a cap number to help with rendition selection prior to the standard bandwidth averaging algorithm being ready.
b) New getters/setters for values initialized by constants.
c) Update function refactored: Framerate monitoring broken out and improved by using deltas rather than a timer. This is more accurate when the user’s CPU usage is high.
4. Akamai customers - there is an Akamai-internal release that accompanies this public open-source release . It contains a bridging library that allows Akamai’s HDNetwork for Adobe Flash to integrate with the OVP. If you are interested in deploying that code, contact your account manager and request the OVPHD libraries.
