  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.

  2. Define custom slate image on a live encoder channel which is not receiving ingest feed

    On a live encoder channel, when you stop pushing a live feed on ingest points, le encoded feeds are showing the joined image.
    Could it be possible to replace this default slate by a custom image in a channel?

  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. Support for 24/7 live streaming

    The live streaming channels should be able to keep online for a longer time window to support 24/7 live streams. The actual service works as long as you don't use the transcoding functionality but has some issues.

    For this type of streams a channel has to persist at all time and player URL has to be the same... even when a the ingest RTMP has some issues. A really nice feature would be a static slate/image that is showed in the live stream when there is no RTMP signal for some time.

  5. More navigation controls

    1. Add + / - 5 seconds buttons navigation for better navigation control. Just like you have in Channel9 videos.

  7. 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.

  8. PlayList implementation

    In addition to Asset abstraction add PlayList.
    - Create playlist from sets of Assets.
    - Manage playlist (remove/add/change IN and OUT play points for asset)
    - Use playlist in VOD or LIVE endpoint.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Reuse Asset for livestreaming

    Currently, we cannot use existing uploaded Assets for "live" streaming. This is useful when we do rerun a broadcasting.

    A scenario is that, we can watch same recorded conference video and chat about it at any place with their own devices. Or, just what we can expect about rerunning program in broadcast.

  12. Enable a truly live stream facility

    Our current system allows us to stream live events to 250k viewers at 2 second latency which is a requirement of the type of events we stream, this is not using any fancy hardware, just a laptop and a camera attached. The best I can get on azure is 20 seconds end-to-end streaming, this is not really live and once I add mobile devices that delay goes up. I would like a truly live stream facility that would enable me to use azure to stream at 2 second latencies end-to-end like I have right now.

  13. 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)?

  15. 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

  17. Dynamic Watermark generator

    It would be nice if I could protect my videos generating a watermark with the email or Id of the user that is watching the video. This way, I can track in case of piracy. Today there's a landmark in client side, but i would like something at serverside embedded in the video. I believe that it won't be possible for users to hide it or at least more difficult.

  18. 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.

  20. Custom Machine Vision and Learning pipelines.

    By ingesting big-data media streams, into the Azure Cloud. It should be possible to utilize these to develop and apply custom Machine Vision and Learning pipelines for analytic and process-control in the cloud.
