Transcoding of previously uploaded video

I’m in the process to migrating from a low-end server to a much nicer one. That process went well and I’m nearly ready to switch the DNS. I’m wondering though is transcoding can be applied retroactively. I didn’t enable HLS and transcoding so far because it was unrealistic but now I’d like to facilitate access to a broader audience that doesn’t have always the best bandwidth. Most of my past videos are in 1080p 60fps without HLS and I received few complaints.

I noticed that https://docs.joinpeertube.org/maintain-tools?id=create-transcoding-jobjs exists so should I manually list the different videos I want then batch process those before enabling the new instance to « catch up » with the past videos or is there an easier safer way?

Hi,

Yes it’s the way do reencode already uploaded videos :+1:
