  1. Video compositing through AMS Advanced Encoder

    The lack of an implementation of video compositing (similar to the current overlay/watermark implementation but with video content) has consistently been the only thing stopping me from using AMS for multiple projects.

    Simplified example JSON:

    "CompositionMedia": [

    {
    
    "Position": {
    "X": 100,
    "Y": 100,
    "Width": 100,
    "Height": 50
    },
    "Source": "video2.mp4",
    "Clip": {
    "Starts": "00:00:20",
    "Duration": "00:00:10"
    }
    },
    {
    "Position": {
    "X": 150,
    "Y": 150,
    "Width": 50,
    "Height": 100
    },
    "Source": "video3.mp4",
    "Clip": {
    "Starts": "00:00:25",
    "Duration": "00:00:05"
    }
    }

    ]

  3. Support file length larger than 32 characters

    When you encode an assets and specify an output name longer than 32 characters the name gets truncated to 32 characters.

    Exmaple:

    "123456123456123456123456123456123456123456123456.ism"

    becomes:

    "12345612345612345612345612345612.ism"

  4. Watermarking / Overlay Video using Azure Media Service

    Hi Team,
    I am new to Azure and as far as i now Video Encoding (watermarking or say overlay) on video is a service provided by Azure so we should have a interface for watermarking (overlay) the video where we can provide image and video link and Azure will do the rest functionality for watermarking. Please guide me if we have any direct azure interface or in build support for overlay on video or watermarking the video. If no such facility is available, please guide me how do i do watermarking(overlay) using Dot net step by step.

    Thanks in Advance.

  7. API to extract video format and metadata without trans-coding or analyzing the entire video.

    It would be a great tool to have the ability to analyze a video with an API call, prior to the trans-coding step. We have an issue where we don't have the format/encoding/compression information for all of our videos or other meta-data like video duration, resolution, etc. It would be great to be able to extract this information as a separate API, without an encoding process.

  9. Use "Adaptive Streaming" (or any other) preset with an Overlay

    I like to use the preset "Adaptive Streaming" as it meets all of my needs, but would like to add an image watermark (overlay) to the video.

    Ideally, an overlay feels like a separate option from bitrates, so it would be able to be supplied as a separate option from these presets. Alternative, if I could find the "Adaptive Streaming" preset template, I would be able to modify this existing preset into a custom one, but I haven't found a template. I have found multiple templates for other presets (https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/blob/master/articles/media-services/media-services-mes-presets-overview.md), but not one for "Adaptive Streaming".

    Adding an…

  11. {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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. Support GoPro Cineform HD codec

    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."

  16. 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…

  17. Support multiple audio tracks in Media Encoder Standard

    Media Encoder Standard is able to encode videos containing multiple audio tracks, however these audio tracks cannot be separated in encoder's output. Neither at encoding, nor in .ism file: only first track is available/linkable.
    A simple solution could be if MES's "NonInterleaved" option could separate not only video and audio, but multiple audio tracks also.

  18. Decrease time to start encoder job

    It always takes about 30s to start a job no matter what size the video is. It's too slow.

    For example if you have 5s video and you just want to resize it so you have to wait about a minute before the processing is finished.

    Please improve performance here or provide pricing plans where it will work faster. Less than 5s to start a job should be reasonable.

  20. Allow encoding of audio to mp3 with Media Encoder Standard

    The only way to get mp3 output from AMS is using the premium encoder, it would allow for easier workflows and provide more functionality to give this as an output option with MES.
