  1. Performance SLA

    1. What is the performance SLA for the encoding job? To be more clear, for encoding a 30 min video and generate 5 adaptive bit rate file, how much time it would take? Please share the reports, if you have.

    2. Are these SLAs associated with the VMs it is running with? How can I know the mapping between them?

        • Update .NET SDK

          Hi,

          I would like to use Azure Media Service Nuget package on my UWP app. But, when I installed it, it showed me an error.

          Error looks like this:
          windowsazure.mediaservices 3.8.0.5 is not compatible with uap10.0.10586

          It seems that the latest update of the package is near the end of last year and still does not support .NET platform. When is it available ?

            • Turn off profanity/content filtering in Azure Media Indexer

              Azure Media Indexer v2 automatically redacts certain content when generating transcripts, such as profanity. There is currently no way to turn off this content filtering, making the transcripts less useful.

              Add a setting that allows this functionality to be toggled for each job

              • Remember the volume and bit rate until next time

                In Azure Media Player, the default value of the volume is max, and the default value of the bit rate is auto.
                We can remember those value if we use a web browser cookie, but AMP will be more useful if there is a feature to remember these value by default.

                • Manage Azure Media Server programatically

                  Hi to all,
                  How could I Manage Azure Media Server programmatically.
                  example: I have created from portal.azure.com one (1) AMS.
                  But when S3 10 cores reach the limit, I will need to create a new AMS programmatically.
                  - How I will know when S3 core reach the limit?
                  - How I can create new instance of AMS programmatically?
                  - How I will know when S3 core are idle or AMS is idle?

                  Thanks

                  Nikolas

                  • Low-cost/classic endpoint

                    Why do you not support classic endpoints anymore?
                    I can imagine that media services were born to give streaming capabilities to big companies, but in my case I developed a CMS that is used by many companies, totally based on Azure (web app, storage, cdn, etc.). Sometimes I have designed for my customers a home page that has a video background. Obviously in this case I cannot ask to my customer to pay 50USD/month only for the video background.
                    For these basic cases the classic endpoint was very cheap and useful.
                    Obviously now I’m forced to switch to YouTube.

                    • Support key rotation services for Live Streaming

                      It's helpful to key rotation feature for 24x365 live streaming if Contents Holder required that supported by PlayReady 3.0 or later. Hope we can provide this as option.

                      • Support HLS/DASH for the preview url

                        Is is possible to support viewing the preview stream in HLS/DASH? Currently it is only possible to view it using a player that supports smooth streaming. These players are very difficult to find. Also the preview functionality in the Azure portal has been removed.

                        • 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…

                                • 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.
