  1. Parser performance is slower in IE than other browsers

    Manifest parser works slower in IE than other browsers (ie Chrome). The difference is significant with large manifest.

    With a manifest of 7k+ lines, it would take IE >5s to parse the manifest, comparing to <1s in Chrome.

    IE:
    [13:2:44.318] verbose: azureHtml5JS: manifestParser: Parsing complete: ( xml2json: 5019ms, objectiron: 848ms, total: 5.867s)

    Chrome:
    [13:30:7.744] verbose: azureHtml5JS: manifestParser: Parsing complete: ( xml2json: 673ms, objectiron: 139ms, total: 0.812s)

    • 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?

      • 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…

        • 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

            Since Azure Media Player version 2.1.0 and above, the exception below occurs and style seems to be broken.

            Refer to the attached screenshot.

                • Remember the volume and bit rate until next time

                  In Azure Media Player, the default value of the volume is max, and the default value of the bit rate is auto.
                  We can remember those value if we use a web browser cookie, but AMP will be more useful if there is a feature to remember these value by default.

                  • 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…

                      Such like,

                      myPlayer.src({
                      src: sourceLink,
                      type: 'application/vnd.ms-sstr+xml',
                      }, [{
                      default: true,
                      src: vttSubtitle,
                      kind: 'subtitles',
                      label: 'tw',
                      srclang: 'zh-hant',
                      }]);

                          • Add Npm package for Amp with typescript definitions

                            Right now it is difficult if you use webpack or similar because it relies heavily on npm and node_modules. It would be highly beneficial if this was setup properly for AMP with full typescript definitions available in the package as well.

                            • 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.

                                Add a feature to loop a video. This would be useful in installations using Azure Media Player to stream video from Azure to a display wall or similar.

                                  • AES video won't play back in Chromium

                                    While AES works fine in Chrome itself, the video won't play back properly in Chromium because it attempts to use Widevine even when only AES is available.

                                    The details are here: https://bitbucket.org/chromiumembedded/cef/issues/1964/aes-encrypted-video-playback-fails-works

                                    Note the known issue. It appears that the Azure Player is not detecting capabilities correctly and using AES as it should.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Implement AMP (Accelerated Mobile Pages) extension

                                      AMP project is gaining more popularity. Here's a list of video/audio providers that already built support for it https://github.com/ampproject/amphtml/blob/master/extensions/README.md#audiovideo

                                      It would be very useful to support an AMP video extension

                                        • 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).
