Service update 2020-08-28

- Fixed an rare issue where reprocessing very old sessions could fail when those sessions had specific problems in the original audio encoding.
- Fixed an issue with the public API for Upload, where session or stream uploads sometimes required an upload id even for non-multipart uploads.
- Added a confirmation prompt when manually copying course videos using the Improved Course Copy for Canvas (beta).
- Reduced the lifetime of long-lived cookies used for remembering user preferences to a maximum of 2 years.
- Fixed an issue with student video submissions where attempting to submit a video that was still processing could result in a silent failure.

- Updated Capture to be available as a beta on Android Chrome and Firefox.
- Updated Panopto's UX for embedding a video to collapse the embed options panel, to make better use of the available screen space.
