  1. Stop taking things backwards... and stop making it harder to use...

    Until a few weeks ago, the last time I encoded a video for streaming, things were pretty straightforward.

    Now with the new UI I can't get anything to encode & stream at all, despite multiple attempts - the player fires up and then reports a network error and to ry again later... error code 0x20200190.

    I have a deadline to meet, and right now the only way I can get new video on my site is to host it on the site, not on Azure Media Services - I want to use AMS with the CDN and adaptive streaming for…

  5. Allow AMSE v3 to export .xls from Assets

    AMSE v2 exports .xls files from Assets with manifest included. It's a essencial tool for multiple processing.

  7. Add AV1 video coder support

    Is it possible in a future release to support AV1 encoding instead of H.264? I know the software and hardware encoder isn't really out for consumers yet but it does show promise of better data compression compared to H.264 and is royalty-free compared to H.265.

  10. Overlay a video with another video - alpha mov

    Hi team, it would be useful to add video files as overlays as well as images so alpha movs can be overlaid the original source file.

    This is a capability we currently use with other encoding services that would be nice to have in Azure so we can keep it all in one place.

    Any thoughts?

  11. Support for clipping videos with AMS v3

    v2 allowed you to clip videos by specifying a start time and clip duration.
    A similar v3 feature would be great.

  14. Inserting InsertSilenceIfNoAudio and InsertBlackIfNoVideo using custom presets

    Azure Media Service preset (XML or Json) can't take InsertSilenceIfNoAudio and InsertBlackIfNoVideo same time.

    We need this in cases like, if clip has no audio then encoder can use InsertSilenceIfNoAudio and if clip has no video then encoder can use InsertBlackIfNoVideo.

    When I was going through this blog post https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/media-services/previous/media-services-advanced-encoding-with-mes#no_video I realized this feature is not available, also posted it here asking for details https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/issues/20149.

    Please either build this or confirm alternate option to achieve same.

  15. Allow fractional percentages

    I would like to specify an encoder profile with fractional percentages, wherever percentages can already be used.

    For example, I would like to be able to produce thumbnails with exactly 1/8th the height of the input video, by specifying a percentage of 12.5%.

    If I try this now, I get an error:

    Error : ErrorProcessingTask : An error has occurred. Stage: ApplyEncodeCommand. Code: System.FormatException.

    Microsoft.Cloud.Media.Encoding.PresetException: Failed to enable StretchMode in the preset. --->
    System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

  16. Support QTRLE codec as input

    We use AMS to convert different inputs into mp4 h.264 for previewing purposes. We've seen an increase in usage of videos with this codec in our application, and are currently unable to provide preview for these files.

  18. Leave previous version available in Media Encoders

    Each processor of Media Encoder Stanadard/Premium Workflow has the only latest version now.
    However, I've experienced some errors caused by the update of Media Encoder's processor.

    So I want to use the previous version if some problem is found.
    Please leave previous version available until next update.

  19. 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"
    }
    }

    ]
