NiFi Media server size in 12.12.0 is much smaller than the one in release 12.8

The media server in IDOL release 12.12.0 is much more smaller than the one in IDOL release 12.8.0:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1.8G Mar 1 2021 ../../IDOL12.8.0/LINUX/
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 407M Jul 20 10:10

I wondered if we can use to replace original media server?

Is there any functional regression?

    Hi Yang,

    These are two different products:

    - is a stand-alone application and contains some heavy static data to support its many analytic options.  

    -, contains only the NiFi processors, which expose a subset of Media Server's functionality to be run within NiFi.

    For the latest version of Media Server, look for MediaServer_12.12.0_{YOUR_TARGET_PLATFORM}.zip.

    Best regards,
