  1. Scheduling program to start and stop at specific time

    Currently live streaming programs have to be started and stopped manually. It would be useful to be able to schedule when to start and stop programs allows for precise timing as well as help transitioning between live events seamlessly.

  2. MPEG-DASH ingest support for live streaming

    Some high-end encorder support MPEG-DASH streaming. It helps to Azure Media Services support MPEG-DASH as ingest support to dynamic packaging/encryption/manifest for those, that's valuable.

  4. Get an estimate how long it takes to create a channel and program

    To inform the broadcaster since sometimes it takes several minutes and the broadcaster might thing the encoder program stopped working

    Insert Captions through SDK since not all encoders support this.

  6. Allow Reader access to AMS LiveEvent data via Azure CLI

    Currently a user must have the Contributor role to use the Azure CLI to query LiveEvent information from AMS. If the call is read-only, this should be possible with just Reader role. I would like to be able to grant this level of access to other teams but cannot do this if it requires Contributor.

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  11. 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
