  1. Allow Reader access to AMS LiveEvent data via Azure CLI

    Currently a user must have the Contributor role to use the Azure CLI to query LiveEvent information from AMS. If the call is read-only, this should be possible with just Reader role. I would like to be able to grant this level of access to other teams but cannot do this if it requires Contributor.

  5. QuickSync Video Broken After May 2018 update?

    We have been streaming with OBS Classic to Azure media Services for three years with (overall) no major issues. After the latest update to Media Services at the end of May 2018, streaming no longer worked is we were using QuickSync hardware encoding. We tested with OBS Studio as well and those streams fail to play when using QSV.

    We stream about 600 events each year and rely on QSV for encoding the video so we can dedicate CPU to other tasks like commercial playback, etc...

    We have also tried encoding RTMP with the MediaLooks mFormat SDK (which also worked…

  6. Consistent program start and stop time

    At the moment, live stream programs can be inconsistent when starting and stopping, which can take between seconds to more than a minute to process. This makes it difficult to line up consecutive programs for continuous streaming and recording.

  7. Automatic continuous recording

    Right now we cannot record a live stream for longer than the maximum archive window length of 25 hours. If the live stream goes on for longer than 25 hours we begin to lose data.
    It would be useful to have some function that enables recording of live stream without being restricted by a certain duration. For example, we want to continuously record a security camera stream that is active 24/7. The recorded assets can be in chunks of 1-hour duration.

  8. Scheduling program to start and stop at specific time

    Currently live streaming programs have to be started and stopped manually. It would be useful to be able to schedule when to start and stop programs allows for precise timing as well as help transitioning between live events seamlessly.

  9. Video based examples of live streaming with code with steps broken down api functionality. Probably would involve a series of videos.

    Video based examples of live streaming with C# code as an MVC project with steps broken down api functionality. Probably would involve a series of videos. Examples would include connecting to the account, creating the asset, allowing the broadcast to be remotely started, Running the broadcast, ending the broadcast, exporting the resulting asset to a storage account.

  10. MPEG-DASH ingest support for live streaming

    Some high-end encorder support MPEG-DASH streaming. It helps to Azure Media Services support MPEG-DASH as ingest support to dynamic packaging/encryption/manifest for those, that's valuable.

  14. Automatic failover for live streaming

    Using 3 to 4+ fragmented ingest streams, embedded with VITC (SMPTE) timecode. Buffer at the AMS server, for several seconds (this should be configurable, to allow for extra time when satellite and terrestrial internet redundancy are utilized). Then analyze the 3+ streams for similarity, both video and audio would be cool. When the stream that is being pushed out to clients, differs greatly from the others, automatically switch over. It would also be nice to be able to get notifications, not necessarily to the encoders themselves, but maybe and configurable https endpoint.

  15. Support timed ID3 metadata in HLS

    Use case being sending in-band metadata about what's currently being streamed, used by clients as cuepoints, for information display, to invoke time-aligned actions and so on. Because the data can be embedded within the stream, the application playing the video doesn't need to load data from two separate sources and doesn't need to do anything to keep the two data streams in sync.

  16. Today, when we try a live encoder to ingest into AMS Live channel, if it does not work, we have very limited info on why the ingest is refus

    refused. It would be great if an option is provided to disclose the detailed exception info via either API, portal, etc.

  17. Multiple cameras sync live streaming

    Multiple cameras are set on the same field.
    We hope users can select each camera video.

    In this situation, we must prepare a channels for each camera on Azure Media Services.
    Of course, time stamp information exactly synchs the video from all the cameras.

    we hope synchronization function of data between the channels on Azure Media Services.

  18. Media encoder thumbnail job while live streaming

    Thumbnail job of Media Encoder Standard while live streaming.

    It does not follow the asset that has not been created yet.
    Job finishes before live broadcast is completed.

    Currently, we must execute polling thread for thumbnail creation while live streaming.

  19. Directly ingesting RTSP

    RTSP is a very common IP camera protocol. If Azure would add the capability to directly ingest RTSP, it would greatly improve the ability to take advantage of Azure's services for IP cameras. Now these cameras always require the additional overhead of an encoder/trans-coder just to convert from RTSP to RTMP which adds delay, processing requirements, and is zero value add from a users/developer perspective.

  20. 360 degree panoramic slate, 2:1 aspect ratio

    About 360 degree panoramic live streaming, Azure media services.

    The latest requirement of slate is the only 16:9 aspect ratio on the channel live encoder.

    As the above, aspect ratio of 360 degree panoramic video is 2:1.
    https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/live-virtual-reality-streaming/

    If we want to insert slates in 360 degree panoramic case, we must produce special 16:9 slate for 2:1 panoramic videos.

    I hope insert 2:1 panoramic slate.

    Thanks,
    Akira
