  1. Restricting the direct hls stream access on mobile

    Currently the trans coded hls stream url is directly playable on the mobile browser. Need to put restrictions at the CDN level to avoid access on mobile or user-agent.

  2. Cache for the CDN-version

    How come the CDN-versions of AMP does not supply any cache-headers?

    Most other external scripts seem to leverage cache, and I'd understand if this is a bad idea for "latest", but any specific version should be cached (or allow for a specific cached-url).

  3. Support file length larger than 32 characters

    When you encode an assets and specify an output name longer than 32 characters the name gets truncated to 32 characters.

    Exmaple:

    "123456123456123456123456123456123456123456123456.ism"

    becomes:

    "12345612345612345612345612345612.ism"

  4. 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. Support Safari Picture In Picture on macOS

    Support the native Safari Picture In Picture button for media player. This button is added automatically to players that support the native player controls, or can be added to a contextual menu for players with customer controls (see YouTube for an example with the double right click).

  8. The player examples on http://ampdemo.azureedge.net/ do not work in Edge or Internet Explorer!

    The Azure Media Player examples on http://ampdemo.azureedge.net/ only work in Chrome and nothing else. How is it possible that your examples do not work in products of your own company?

  9. Hyperlapse - Disable the "Zooming and Scaling" option

    When a video is hyperlapsed the algorithm seems to zoom and scale which sometimes causes a wobble. Can you add an option to disable this part of the algorithm to avoid this jitter.

  10. Ability to block user from seeking forward video content

    I am new to Azure Media Player, sorry if the question is answered previously.

    Currently, I am working on education app, where a user takes a course by watching videos. Now what I want is, a user should not be able to seek video at the end time, whereas a user can seek wherever he/she wants, till the point he/she has completed a video.

    e.g. if I am showing video of length 10.00 minutes and a user has watched till 5.00, at this point user can seek at any time between 00.00 to 5.00 but a user can't seek after…

  11. Azure Media Player-Vertical writing area

    Vertical writing area's position is rightish.
    And the lower left is the standard for its range.
    I want to change the top to the standard.
    Because sentences are difficult to read.

  13. Use "Adaptive Streaming" (or any other) preset with an Overlay

    I like to use the preset "Adaptive Streaming" as it meets all of my needs, but would like to add an image watermark (overlay) to the video.

    Ideally, an overlay feels like a separate option from bitrates, so it would be able to be supplied as a separate option from these presets. Alternative, if I could find the "Adaptive Streaming" preset template, I would be able to modify this existing preset into a custom one, but I haven't found a template. I have found multiple templates for other presets (https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/azure-docs/blob/master/articles/media-services/media-services-mes-presets-overview.md), but not one for "Adaptive Streaming".

    Adding an…

  17. Support GoPro Cineform HD codec

    Is the GoPro Cineform HD codec supported as incoming video format? I get an error anytime I try to use such a file so Im assuming it is not. Can someone confirm please? Unfortunately the error message is simply "An error has occurred. Stage: ApplyEncodeCommand. Code: 0x00000001."

  19. Have Developer Account with lot more service usage

    Have Developer Account with lot more service usage.

    I am finding this very restrictive as a developer to use the MSDN account. All I have is 1 streaming unit allocated, and all I do is just use 1 simple video, and go thru many iterations of Upload/Encode/Protect & Play either using Azure Media Explorer/Azure Media Player or our App we are developing. I don't even think I might have done this so many times. Say around 15 or may be 20 times. This is not being used or exposed to rest of the world, not even within my co-workers. My…

  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
