I’m setting up my own transcoding server (concurrent with the default SG one) to get better quality from SG web player, but haven’t found any in-depth docs about checking the status of media files being transcoded.
I’m currently downloading original uploaded media, transcoding it myself with ffmpeg and then uploading it to ‘sg_uploaded_movie_mp4’ field (webm doesn’t seem to be used in any os or browser my project partners use). Problem I’m facing is that I need to check what the status of default upload/transcode process is, because it seems that version is created and ‘sg_uploaded_movie’ field is filled even when file itself is not available yet, thus my process downloads a 0 KB sized file.
How can I check the status of media upload and/or transcoding? In api docs it says there is a data field ‘processing_status’ but what the values are for video clips and how they are changed is not discussed.
