  1. 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

            • Define and control keys for summarizing video feature

              The feature of summarizing the video would be better if customer have control on keys ( scene change, audio change, etc).

              • 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."

                              • Add better support for subtitles in SDK

                                Given the ID of a media asset, there is no way to determine whether there is a subtitles file for that asset, except to search within the asset for a suitable file by the file extension. (i.e. get an asset that ends with VTT) And then, if you find one, there is no way to know what language it contains. There should be a way to do this through the SDK, storing the name of a subtitles file and its language attribute so that playback requires only the streaming URL to the asset, and the manifest would be properly updated…

                                  • Reveal your new prices now not on the same day you implement the change

                                    Shocked to see you are changing you're pricing model with 1 months notice and you are not actually revealing the exact pricing until the day the changes go live! How is your this possible? My system is built around a well understood pricing model and your change is going to dramatically increase my costs because we encode lots of video to low resolution. And you aren't even telling us that how much it will cost! How's can I run my business if I don't have details of price changes and then allow several months for the change to take place…

                                      • AES video won't play back in Chromium

                                        While AES works fine in Chrome itself, the video won't play back properly in Chromium because it attempts to use Widevine even when only AES is available.

                                        The details are here: https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/cef/issues/1964/aes-encrypted-video-playback-fails-works

                                        Note the known issue. It appears that the Azure Player is not detecting capabilities correctly and using AES as it should.

                                        Thanks!

                                        • Implement AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) extension

                                          AMP project is gaining more popularity. Here's a list of video/audio providers that already built support for it https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/blob/master/extensions/README.md#audiovideo

                                          It would be very useful to support an AMP video extension
