  1. 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.

  2. Reduce live streaming latency for Azure Media Services live streaming

    AMS is great, but it's intended for one-to-many applications.
    I need to create a one-to-one (single way) stream application, with very low latency (~2 seconds).
    But, at this right moment, only adaptative protocols are used to output the stream, so it is not possible.
    If you could integrate RTMP output stream and reduce the latency, would be wonderful

    We recently added a Low Latency option on our v3 Live Event API to bring latency down to 8-10 seconds e2e.

    See the blog post here – https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/what-s-new-in-azure-media-services-video-processing/

    We will begin work next on Ultra Low Latency ( and CMAF low latency) which is targeted at 2s range, but keep in mind tha latencies down at that level do not scale well to large audiences with high stability at the client side. Client side still needs to maintain about a 1 second buffer for the stream to stay stable.

  3. 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.

  5. More troubleshooting capabilities

    Often intermittent errors are hard to reproduce. It would be great to have the framework, best practices whitepaper to know how to collect information which could be used to troubleshoot issues that occur intermittently or in the cases they can't be easily reproduced

  6. 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.
