  1. Aria & Accessibility Improvements

    Using the aXe plugin and Accessibility Developer Tools in Chrome, the following accessibility issues arise as severe/critical. The player has been made keyboard accessible, but some of these other issues should be looked at to comply with current accessibility standards:

    • Aria-expanded property not allowed on role="menuitem".
    (Elements: .vjs-chapters-button, .amp-audiotracks-control, .vjs-subtitles-button, .vjs-captions-button, .amp-quality-control)

    • Proper aria parent (role="menu" / role="menubar") is not present for menuitem.
    (Elements: .vjs-chapters-button, .amp-audiotracks-control, .vjs-subtitles-button, .vjs-captions-button, .amp-quality-control)

    • Invalid aria attribute value: aria-valuenow="NaN".
    (Element: .vjs-progress-holder)

    • Elements with aria roles must ensure required owned elements are present. Element needs children with role of menuitem since it…

      • How to set default subtitles in AMP?

        I have already try many ways, but still failed.

        Such like,

          • Angular, angular 2, React Wrappers

            It would be highly beneficial to provide both Angular and angular 2 components in node_module format that could be used for mainstream projects.

            • Add Npm package for Amp with typescript definitions

              Right now it is difficult if you use webpack or similar because it relies heavily on npm and node_modules. It would be highly beneficial if this was setup properly for AMP with full typescript definitions available in the package as well.

              • Free AMS from iPhone Proxy by Migrating to AMP

                Problem:

                In order to play encrypted streams on iPhones using the AES token pattern, one must use a proxy to transform the manifest to one that is digestible by iPhones. This requires special knowledge of how to integrate the proxy code on GitHub into one's application, thus reducing adoption of this excellent way of securing AMS videos.

                Solution:

                My solution is to port the 20 lines of c# code in the manifest proxy controller into the AMP javascript itself, thus eliminating the need for adopters of this pattern to know anything about the proxy. The javascript would transform the returning…

                • {ThumbnailTime} macro for Media Encoder Standard

                  Please add {ThumbnailTime} macro like it was in Azure Media Encoder.
                  Usually we extract thumbs not only for see but for navigate by video (click on thumb will do jump command on video player)

                  Parsing {ThumbnailTime} we can know exact timecode to jump. This is the base feature for media asset managers.

                  • Timeline Preview

                    The Timeline Preview displays static thumbnails that correspond to the video's playhead location in the Player's seek-bar. Hovering over any time location in the seek-bar will display the relevant Timeline Preview tooltip. This allows viewers to skim quickly through the video's playback and skip to interest points easily.

                    • Extend the Portal to include more features from the AMSE tool

                      We hope more features from the Azure Media Services Explorer tool is being integrated into the Portal to create a SaaS product that can compete with Elemental Cloud. At least allow us to customize our own encoding profiles by uploading our own JSON files.

                      • Ability to define word count per time stamp in Azure Media Indexer

                        The number of words per time stamp in a file generated by Media Indexer 2 is highly variable. As we look at the tool as a starting point for generating caption files, it would be useful if the length of each portion the transcript per time stamp was able to be defined, so less work would need to be done in breaking up long transcript chunks into lengths suitable for delivery as captions and reencoding the time stamps.

                        • IP address restriction to Azure Media Services Key Delivery Services

                          A kind of proxy service will be in the front-end of Key Delivery Services to support advanced access control to acquire keys/licenses in some scenarios. It would be very helpful if this may be considered.

                          • [bug] repeated text snippets at the end of longer Media Indexer 2 analyses

                            I have been testing Media Indexer 2 on longer files (1 hour+) and just today longer files have had odd replications of the end of the file. Here is an example mp4 and the generated VTT file. The replication begins around 41 minutes in this example. This happened in three other files today, as well, one as short as 30 minutes. A short video, under 4 minutes, did not show the issue.

                            The video from which this VTT was generated is available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qM1uRXNOWU

                              • Provide timestamps from video summary

                                What they want to achieve:
                                Insert a video, process it to get a summary and then get screenshots out of the summary to put them into a computer vision api (get the description of what is on that screenshot) so that they can get descriptive metadata of the whole metadata. We are receiving a lot of user generated content and would like to be able to tag it efficiently.

                                It would be nice to get a metadata file alongside the summarized video. The metadata file should contain information about all the scenes that are detected as well as portions of…

                                    • Support advanced configuration of Media Services assets via ARM template

                                      At present, it appears that you can create an AMS asset via ARM template and specify its storage account only. It would be great to also have the ability to configure media reserved units, streaming endpoints, and live streaming settings from a template as well.

                                      • Cineform HD transcoding error

                                        Is the GoPro Cineform HD codec supported as incoming video format? I get an error anytime I try to use such a file so Im assuming it is not. Can someone confirm please? Unfortunately the error message is simply "An error has occurred. Stage: ApplyEncodeCommand. Code: 0x00000001."

                                        • Loop option for video

                                          Add a feature to loop a video. This would be useful in installations using Azure Media Player to stream video from Azure to a display wall or similar.
