  1. Make the AMP code open source and leverage the community for development.

    Submit the code on github. This makes it easier for developers to contribute and enhance players. Also there are several existing javascript DASH implementataions which can be easily plugged in if needed.

    This feature is a future planned item.

    Audio Only scenarios are currently supported by live streaming pipeline, but not fully supported by Azure Media Player on DASH and on some platform with Smooth Streaming. You can use iOS native player to play audio only HLS output untill AMP gets the support.

  3. Support for custom license request in Azure Media Player

    It is very helpful for the one who has external license server and custom authorization that AMP support custom license request in AMP such as adding custom headers and overriding LA_URL. It's very hard for an already running service to change custom license server authorization code in license server side.

  4. More navigation controls

  6. 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.

  7. Option to disable prefetch

    Add an option to disable video prefetch. This is to better support scenarios where the video is not the primary content of the page, for example the video player is displayed as a widget on a portal home page or the video is part of a news article.
    Currently the player will start prefetching video content once loaded and this is not ideal, especially on mobile devices.

  8. Provide a version that can be used with with self-hosted adaptive streams

    It would be useful to have a ready-made player with fallback options for different devices with a license that would allow usage with content hosted from IIS Media Services.

  9. Cue Points in AMP

    I need to be able to attach callbacks to the video at different time points. for example i define an array TimePointsArray[03.453, 06.333, 10.212 ] and a function callBack(){ console.log("you have reached the CUE"); }. now as the video is being played, i want the callBack() function to be executed at every time point value in the TimePointsArray. Please also note that the TimePointsArray might get updated as the video is being played.
    It will be a great relief if you could guide me achieve this with Azure Media Player.

    Azure Media Player is a web based player that plays-back streaming content from Azure Media Services. As an web application developer you can choose to expose Download URLs to your customers for the full MP4 content (which you can get the URL from Azure Media Services). Downloading the content is outside the context of Azure Media Player.

    Did you mean offline playback (different scenario)?

  11. Video player sample support for 360 Video Streaming needed!!

    I have verified that with any one of a number of 3rd Party/open source html 5 player I can render 360' video uploaded to AMS. However in all cases they can only bind to the progressive download link created by generating a Locator. None work with the adaptive stream. It would be great if we had a reference player from AMS team that enable consumption of either source from AMS. Something along the lines of a player similar to http://vrinnovation.net/vrvideo/ would be awesome!

  12. Need Preload option for azure media player

    Please add the support for Preload option in azure media player.

    Preload option means, it should allow the player to start downloading the media on the page load instead of after the play button is pressed.
    This will increase the speed of start up.

    Thanks,
    Kiran

  15. 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.

  17. Support for HighQuality profile in Flash/Silverlight tech.

    Flash/Silverlight always starts with very low bandwidth even on high bandwidth connections. I would like an option to buffer for a few seconds to get full quality to start. This is especially needed because flash/silverlight is only tech supported in IE on Windows 7.

  18. Azure Media Player - start playing with 1st Audio Track, not the last one

    Azure Media Player starts play last Audio Track, not the first one (in mp4 files). Please add an option to start playing first Audio Track by default.

  19. Stateless Proxy for AES HLS Encrypted video Streaming on IOS

    Token authorized AES encrypted HLS stream in IOS Safari.

    Since Apple doesn't allow to make secondary call via browser (only via native stack), it is becoming a big issue. Can Azure provide a service like stateless proxy (bypass) or connector to handle secondary level call, so instead of having separate proxy farm can this be done in Azure Ecosystem?

  20. 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…
