  1. 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?

  2. Telemetry Service: Release portal reporting

    Telemetry data still cannot be viewed at the Azure portal.

    The Azure Media Services Live Monitoring Dashboard is a nice idea, but by far to complex to setup.

    Integrate the Live Monitoring Dashboard into the Azure portal or provide a simpler way to set it up.

  3. Add backup and restore support for Azure Media Services assets and locators

    There should be a way to restore assets and locators if they are deleted so as to restore the same URLs as earlier.

  4. API to extract video format and metadata without trans-coding or analyzing the entire video.

    It would be a great tool to have the ability to analyze a video with an API call, prior to the trans-coding step. We have an issue where we don't have the format/encoding/compression information for all of our videos or other meta-data like video duration, resolution, etc. It would be great to be able to extract this information as a separate API, without an encoding process.

  6. Allow encoding of audio to mp3 with Media Encoder Standard

    The only way to get mp3 output from AMS is using the premium encoder, it would allow for easier workflows and provide more functionality to give this as an output option with MES.

  8. Workflow Designer without Local License Server

    I'm testing Media Encoder Premium Workflow with the Workflow Designer.
    The Workflow Designer needs a license which is expired within 60 days.
    And I need to contact Microsoft every 2 months.
    It bother me.

    I want to use this software without such routine works.
    (For example, logging in with MS Account.)

  9. Provide facility to add attributes to files being stored via Media Services to be able to locate these files.

    When we send any file to media service it is kind of depending upon either the file name or the response back from Media Service (i.e. the URL to access the blob). There is no way to associate properties / attributes to file while uploading so that neither response back is needed nor file name is important. It would be good to provide a way to add properties to file and then later search on those attributes.

    Hi Navin,

    I’ve moved your question to the Media Services (WAMS) section of UserVoice.

    Today, we do not offer a Content Management System (CMS) as an integral component of the Media Services Platform as a Service. We are engaged with existing CMS platform providers to build on top of WAMS. A CMS will typically offer file and asset level metadata storage, searchability, indexing, cross-referencing and web-page-content generation (think online video galleries).

    We have anticipated external CMS, and eventually integrated CMS services. To accommodate, we have designed in the IAsset.AlternateId property. The goal of this text string is for an external CMS to put their table-key into the AlternateId, that way, they can query:
    var theAsset = cloudMediaContext.Assets.Where(a => a.AlternateId == “SomeKeyGuid_FromTheCMS”).FirstOrDefault();

    The workflow is to use the CMS to find the file(s) or Asset via the metadata stored in the CMS, then find…

  10. Add support for ARM architecture in Live-Video-Analytics edge module

    The recently released LVA IoT edge module works on only AMD64 and x64. Devices like raspberrypi are powerful enough to deploy LVA on the edge.

    Please add support for ARM architecture in LVA IoT edge module.

  11. Allow Azure Media Player to playback content while prohibiting users from interacting (pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding, etc.)

    Allow Azure Media Player to playback content while prohibiting users from interacting (pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding, etc.) with the player. An example would like like specifying the video as an ad in Azure Media Player coding: http://amp.azure.net/libs/amp/latest/docs/index.html#amp.adelement.

  12. Improve Assets so hierarchy can be created instead of placing every asset in one flat directory

    Improve Assets section so I can create folders instead of placing every asset in one flat directory. One flat directory structure with encoded media also placed there creates a jumbled mess to sort through when there are 10,000+ contents there, let alone 50,000+ contents.

  14. 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…

  15. Extend the Portal to include more features from the AMSE tool

    We hope more features from the Azure Media Services Explorer tool is being integrated into the Portal to create a SaaS product that can compete with Elemental Cloud. At least allow us to customize our own encoding profiles by uploading our own JSON files.

  17. Support multiple audio tracks in Media Encoder Standard

    Media Encoder Standard is able to encode videos containing multiple audio tracks, however these audio tracks cannot be separated in encoder's output. Neither at encoding, nor in .ism file: only first track is available/linkable.
    A simple solution could be if MES's "NonInterleaved" option could separate not only video and audio, but multiple audio tracks also.

  18. Token Authentication

    Single Access Token (SAT) protection would make sense in case people would like to share a video securely, this means that after a certian time to live the link won't work any longer.

  19. Support for on-demand 360' video streaming. Today YouTube, Facebook, Vrideo, and others support the simple upload/playback of content

    Today all the major video services support the simple upload, processing, and playback delivery (via web as well as Virtual devices ) of 360' video. We still do not have this and we have gotten requests to deliver and demonstrate to customers
