9/4/2019 Media Services Retiring Features Over the last several years, we've been making steady improvements to the encoding features of Azure Media Services. The Media Encoder Standard (MES) and Premium Workflow (MEPW) encoder capabilities provide significant improvements in terms of capability, robustness, reliability, performance, and price. In contrast, the legacy encoders, Windows Azure Media Encoder (WAME) and Azure Media Encoder (AME), were built on older technology. Workflows that depend on these components are now at a disadvantage. As a result, we are retiring both the legacy components, WAME and AME, on November 30, 2019. You will need to migrate your code to use the Media Encoder Standard (MES) or Premium Workflow (MEPW) encoder capabilities. Link Link Details
