  2. Add Support for HEVC H.265 Encoding

    See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HighEfficiencyVideo_Coding. Our internal tests with HEVC/H.265 encoding is that it can decrease 4K file size by 4X. Please consider adding support for this encoder as an option for video output.

  3. Support MPEG4-ALS audio codec as input and output

    it looks like more better codec become hot topic at premium contents space. adopting MPEG4-ALS to Azure Media Services looks more value in point of adopt standard view. of couse we have to consider device side support including windows 10.

  5. Support for WEBM output container

    Currenlty, AMS support WEBM input container. However, we would like to output media files as WEBM format. Our requirement is because Doubleclick Ad Exchange (Google Ad Exchnage) require webm format.

  6. Workflow Designer without Local License Server

    I'm testing Media Encoder Premium Workflow with the Workflow Designer.
    The Workflow Designer needs a license which is expired within 60 days.
    And I need to contact Microsoft every 2 months.
    It bother me.

    I want to use this software without such routine works.
    (For example, logging in with MS Account.)

  7. Bill reserved encoding units on an hourly basis

    With variable and unpredictable workloads, getting billed daily increases the cost significantly. For example, if there a need to increase encoding capacity for 20 or even 23 hours, because the billing unit is 1 day from 00:00 GMT (or is it actual 00:00 datacenter time?) to 23:59, such increase will trigger 2 reserved units x day (since most people work during business hours)

  8. Android 5 Lollipop Encoding Support

    Azure Media Services need to be able to support Android 5 Lollipop encoding. With 17% Share of the largest mobile platform, Azure Media Services has to support this for it to be a viable encoding services. I would also suggest that the majority of developers using Azure Media are likely doing cross platform development on Xamarin---so adding a native player and code samples for the end to end mobile media solution are needed

    Thanks for the feedback. While we support a majority of the codecs in the Lollipop platform, there are a few which are pending licensing discussions with the appropriate IP owners.

  9. Compose a series of still images into a video

    Pull a series of images from blob storage or accept them from a stream of REST calls. Convert each image to a video frame and output the resulting video.

  10. Separated Maximum Values of Resevable Encode Units per Editions on Media Services

    I want to have separated maximum values of reservable encoding units per edition(Basic/Standard/Premium).

    I use Media Services Encoder for a video streaming service. I usually only need to reserve Standard's 3-5 encoding units for our service. However, I sometimes need to encode several thousand videos within a month. In this case, default value of the maximum units, 25 is not enough even if I upgrade the edition to Premium. So I requested MS Support to increase the max value of reservable encoding units as 100 in Premium. But there is a problem:

    the maximum value is reset to 25 when…

  11. Automatic Scaling Up / Down of Reserved Encoding Units

    Having to plan ahead and manually reserve Encoding Units prior to submitting jobs, then manually stopping them upon job completion loses one important aspect of cloud computing: auto-scalability.
    It would be much more useful to set an upper limit on number of reserved concurrent encoding units and let WAMS manage according to size of job queue.
    This would make WAMS Encoding elastic and on par with other cloud encoding services.

    Hi SCrainic,
    Auto-scaling of reserved units is on the roadmap for Windows Azure Media Services.
