  1. Ability to train face recognition prior to indexing (e.g. with images, similar to FACE API)

    A way to train the face recognition with "known data" (e.g. images of people, like in FACE API).
    This could be something like a corporate image database that can be referenced or the images uploaded.
    Also a way to export the face training data would be nice.

              While Logo detection is not supported at the moment, we do recognize brands that are mentioned or appear in OCR (which does cover a category of logos where the brand name appears textually). This list of brands detected is customizable via API and will soon also appear in the UI

              Training a face for identification is spported via the API and by using the UI – just assign a name to a face in the insights panel

            • Transcript missing

              Speech is starting in the middle of the video. Transcript is missing. Is it a known issue?

              • People - Allow people to be associated with speakers

                In Insights, you're able to add names to people that have been identified in videos.

                You should also be able to associate people with speakers within the transcript instead of displaying "Speaker #1" or "Speaker 2".

                This should also work for audio only content.

                      • Provide time stamps for individual words

                        Currently, we get breakdown from Video Indexer with transcript blocks that contain whole sentences or phrase which are 5-10 seconds long. We need more granular speech to text with times when each word is spoken. Media Analytics in Media Services already does that, but it would be useful to have it in Video Indexer API.

                          How should I go about it?

                          *The videos are about 2hrs long

                            where 123 is the timecode.

                                    I've done a really good test from a french tv documentary. It will be very usefull to select différent language for subtitle, instead of generate only subtitle in the native language of the media.

                                    • How can I improve transcript quality?

                                      I uploaded my private audio-only media (mp3). The generated transcript is completely different from the original ones.
                                      I understand this service is a preview, but I'd like to improve the quality if there's anything to do on my side.
                                      Is there any guideline to improve the transcript quality?
                                      also, it's good to generate error/warning message when the AI recognizes transcript quality is bad.

                                      • can't see videos

                                        After posting video via the API, I get the results but I don't see the videos, nor can I plan them through the portal

                                          You must use the same email address and oAuth provider for the website and API to point at the same account. Per your description it seems like you are using a different combination and hance have 2 separated accounts.

                                          Please, as a Microsoft "fan", I can't let this happen. The main page is full of incredible BAD snapshots from videos. I think this is NOT how we sell a product. See the attached snapshot from the https://www.videoindexer.ai/?tab=samples.
