  1. Automatically Disable Full Screen Button if Full Screen Not Allowed

    If AMP is in an iFrame that doesn't have allowfullscreen set, or you've specifically told your browser not to allow full screen for a specific domain, then it would be nice if AMP just disabled the full screen toggle button on the player.

    You could check if AMP is in a context that allows full screen with something like this...

    public static isFullScreenAllowed(): boolean {
    var document: any = window.document;
    return document.fullscreenEnabled || document.webkitFullscreenEnabled
    || document.mozFullScreenEnabled || document.msFullscreenEnabled;
    }

  2. Playback Frame Rate

    It would be desirable to have API support of current playback frame rate. This is useful for test purpose. In addition, it is useful to keep track of lost frame count in a playback session.

  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.

  5. Watermarking / Overlay Video using Azure Media Service

    Hi Team,
    I am new to Azure and as far as i now Video Encoding (watermarking or say overlay) on video is a service provided by Azure so we should have a interface for watermarking (overlay) the video where we can provide image and video link and Azure will do the rest functionality for watermarking. Please guide me if we have any direct azure interface or in build support for overlay on video or watermarking the video. If no such facility is available, please guide me how do i do watermarking(overlay) using Dot net step by step.

    Thanks in Advance.

  6. Add support for videos without audio tracks

    Not sure if it's by design or not, but AMP fails if there is no audio track.

    I can see a number of valid business cases for videos with no audio tracks.

    The errors:
    MEDIA_ERR_SRC_NOT_SUPPORTED
    error: azureHtml5JS: workflowSequencer: stepRejected: Module = streamSelector FailureCode = 0x00400003err: Video or audio streams not found

  7. Free AMS from iPhone Proxy by Migrating to AMP

    Problem:

    In order to play encrypted streams on iPhones using the AES token pattern, one must use a proxy to transform the manifest to one that is digestible by iPhones. This requires special knowledge of how to integrate the proxy code on GitHub into one's application, thus reducing adoption of this excellent way of securing AMS videos.

    Solution:

    My solution is to port the 20 lines of c# code in the manifest proxy controller into the AMP javascript itself, thus eliminating the need for adopters of this pattern to know anything about the proxy. The javascript would transform the returning…

  8. Timeline Preview

    The Timeline Preview displays static thumbnails that correspond to the video's playhead location in the Player's seek-bar. Hovering over any time location in the seek-bar will display the relevant Timeline Preview tooltip. This allows viewers to skim quickly through the video's playback and skip to interest points easily.

  9. Add event listener to track changes of selected closed captions/subtitles in the player.

    We would like to know how much are closed captions/subtitles used in the player (how many times are different CC/subtitles selected from the menu).

  10. Create a light weight player without localized string and controls

    In some cases we don't need the player controls and localized strings as we would use our own. Thus it will be great to provide a lighter version of the player which does not include these so that js size gets smaller for better performance.

  11. 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.

  12. Today, when we try a live encoder to ingest into AMS Live channel, if it does not work, we have very limited info on why the ingest is refus

    refused. It would be great if an option is provided to disclose the detailed exception info via either API, portal, etc.

  15. Document how to get large videos (e.g., above 200MB) uploaded

    There is no obvious or documented way to get a large video (e.g., above 200MB) into Media Services without writing code or without some Windows dependent application.

    Though not documented very well, I'm able to load large mp4 file into a Storage Account. It would appear that there is upload capability from Storage accounts to a Media Account. But, though the Storage accounts appears in the dialog box, the video blob does not.

    The blob is definitely there (confirmed with the CLI and from the portal). But it is not visible from the "Upload content" dialog screen.

    Please document this…

  17. Android 5 Lollipop Encoding Support

    Azure Media Services need to be able to support Android 5 Lollipop encoding. With 17% Share of the largest mobile platform, Azure Media Services has to support this for it to be a viable encoding services. I would also suggest that the majority of developers using Azure Media are likely doing cross platform development on Xamarin---so adding a native player and code samples for the end to end mobile media solution are needed

    Thanks for the feedback. While we support a majority of the codecs in the Lollipop platform, there are a few which are pending licensing discussions with the appropriate IP owners.

  18. Compose a series of still images into a video

    Pull a series of images from blob storage or accept them from a stream of REST calls. Convert each image to a video frame and output the resulting video.

  19. 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

  20. Deleting more than one item from Azure Media service content

    Currently we need to select each item and click on delete for removing the items in Azure media service content. Give us the option to select more than one item and delete.

    We are discussing multi-select with the portal team as a potential improvement. Thank you for the suggestion.
