Encoding profile mimetypes are mostly ignored

    Details

    • Type: Bug
    • Status: Resolved
    • Priority: Major
    • Resolution: Fixed and reviewed
    • Affects Version/s: 6.0
    • Fix Version/s: None
    • Component/s: Configuration
    • Labels:
      None
    • Severity:
      Operations
    • Steps to reproduce:
      Hide
      Encoding profiles let you define mime types for the output of an
      operation (e.g. video conversion) but these are mostly ignored by the
      composer since an inspection is run on the output which will also set
      the files mime type.

      That behavior makes the mime type specifications in encoding profiles
      not only a configuration overhead but also introduces unexpected
      behavior since sometimes it is been used and sometimes it is not.

      In fact, the only place a mime type needs to be specified is when
      Opencast generates images since inspection is implemented to be run on
      tracks instead of attachments. But for that, Opencast's MimeTypes class
      has another way of automatically determining the mime type.
