  1. Asset Filter with spaces in name cannot be played with Azure Media Player. Taking out the spaces works.

    Asset Filter with spaces in name cannot be played with Azure Media Player. Taking out the spaces works.

    Please fix player to play asset filters with names or special characters in name.

    Broken Examples:

    https://myaccount.streaming.mediaservices.windows.XXXXX.ism/manifest(filter=Abc 123)

    https://myaccount.streaming.mediaservices.windows.XXXXX.ism/manifest(filter=Abc%20123)

    Working example - no space in filter name

    https://myaccount.streaming.mediaservices.windows.XXXXX.ism/manifest(filter=Abc123)

    This is a limitation in the Azure Portal for customers that are using v3 API. The portal is currently just using v2 API’s so there are a number of gaps and backward compatibility issues with regard to use of v3 APIs. We recommend just using the v3 capabilities via API for now. Work is underway to support v3 API’s in the portal. If UI tool is needed prior to this availability, the Azure Media Services Explorer tool (https://github.com/Azure/Azure-Media-Services-Explorer) can be used as it has full support for v3 API’s.

  3. Dashboard visualization enhancement for media services

    Hello,

    If someone has multiple media services and he wants to pin to dashboard the reserved units, he cannot differentiate between them. If the title of the related media service appears it would be better.

    Could not we add a label for dashboard parts?

  4. Support QTRLE codec as input

    We use AMS to convert different inputs into mp4 h.264 for previewing purposes. We've seen an increase in usage of videos with this codec in our application, and are currently unable to provide preview for these files.

  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. Remove StorageEncrypted documentation since it is no longer needed and causes problems with dynamic encryption if used

    Remove StorageEncrypted documentation since it is no longer needed and causes problems with dynamic encryption if used.

    Azure storage accounts are already encrypted so StorageEncrypted is wasteful.

    In addition Dynamic deliver encryption cannot be used if StorageEncrypted is applied.

  9. Leave previous version available in Media Encoders

    Each processor of Media Encoder Stanadard/Premium Workflow has the only latest version now.
    However, I've experienced some errors caused by the update of Media Encoder's processor.

    So I want to use the previous version if some problem is found.
    Please leave previous version available until next update.

  10. Azure media player - enable resolution for progressive MP4 video urls

    For smoothstream url with ism manifest it shows bitrate resolution option on player to chnage it.
    how to achieve custom resolution (like 720p , 540p and 360p) for the progressive MP4 videos. where user can choose resolution on player itself and default will be 720p?

    There is no plugin for resolution option if source of player is progressive mp4.

  13. Azure Media Player: Support Live Smooth Streaming Playback in HTML5/JavaScript

    I use Smooth Streaming as ingest of Live Streaming.

    However, Smooth Streaming is only supported in Flash and Silverlight.
    So browsers I can use is restricted.

  14. Azure media service playback on Edge never works

    We are using Azure Media Service and Azure Media Player for our video delivery, few percent of our customers who use Edge browser always reports issue that video delivery not works.

    If you check this http://ampdemo.azureedge.net/azuremediaplayer.html sample on Edge you will notice the issue. I tried to change advanced option on this page, but none of them works.

    Can you please confirm any workaround?

  15. 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.

  16. 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).

  17. 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"

  18. 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.
