As Asset Manager continues to expand support for media types we have updated the name to better reflect its flexibility. Access Asset Manager by clicking the "Assets" tab in your Dashboard or reach out to Support if you have questions.
New Upload Sessions API
We have added an upload sessions flow that support uploads up to 5GB. This is a multi-part, sequential flow that involves creating a session, uploading a file for that session, and finally closing the session. Note: This is currently supported only for Amazon S3 and Google Cloud Storage Sources.
Other Features and Fixes
Fixed a performance issue impacting a small percentage of image rendering requests.
ix-video is a new custom video player element that works anywhere. Use it to render HLS streams encoded via the imgix video API or other videos of your choosing.
Video API Now Supports MP4 Format
In addition to HLS, the imgix video API now also supports the MP4 format. Choose MP4 for shorter videos or when you want to have control over the video resolution, regardless of the client's bandwidth.
Make simple edits (focalpoint crop, width/height adjustments, format changes) directly in Image Manager and easily download or copy a link to a modified image. Just visit the detail view of an image in Image Manager to try it out.
This app allows users to easily connect to imgix via Image Manager within Magento for product creation and page creation. It is compatible with Magento 2 Open Source/Community Edition. Install it and read the user guide here.
Added Inclusion and Exclusion Paths to Image Manager
Now you can configure your Source to include or exclude certain paths from asset discovery in Image Manager. This does not affect which assets can be rendered via imgix, only which assets are eligible to appear in Image Manager.
