FLV as a source file

I've just added support for FLV files as source videos, rather than just as a destination. Although it's available to anyone at the moment, consider it beta. I'm relatively concerned that this is going to break other formats, in which case I'll need to disable it. We'll see though...

Storage upgrades complete

You may have noticed some notices about downtime this week and last, due to storage upgrades. I'm happy to say that the upgrades are now complete, and we're in good shape to continue growing.

For the technically minded, the first round of downtime, last week, was necessary in order to physically upgrade the RAID array. The second round was necessary in order to actually add the storage to the Media Mill SAN pool. In the future, upgrades should be able to take place in less time, as many of the tasks performed this time were one-time only.

Downtime

As some of you surely noticed, MM was down for nearly 24 hours from noon on July 1st until 10:00am on July 2nd.

This was due to the fire and power outage at the WBOB data center. Sorry for the inconvenience.
