    • Generate subtitles in different languages

      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.
      Thanx

        • Improve your Video Indexer video thumbs!

          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.

              • Add New Upload Parameter for Start Timecode offset

                I'd like a new parameter in the "Upload" API that allows me to set a Starting Timecode offset. Right now, Video Indexer uses 00:00:00 always as the starting timecode value, but I'd like to be able to programmatically set the starting timecode as something else. If you can read SMPTE timecode, perfect, but if not, allow me to set the starting value as something other than 00:00:00.

                • Flagging and De-Duplication of Identical Content

                  Duplication of content is a problem for 100% of media and entertainment facilities. If you can identify duplicate content before migration to archive it’s a HUGE ROI benefit that would accelerate and drive adoption. Essentially detect via frame comparisons or audio that the content is identical and somehow flag it so it doesn’t archive duplicate content?

                  • Allow to put custom data via Custom Vision/Speech services

                    Face API collaboration is great to reduce update data. It super help to collaborate custom vision services OR custom speech services to allow custom data input space.

                      • curl file upload with POST fails after some minutes (provide resumable upload)

                        Trying to upload a large mp4 file to Video Indexer using curl (and also our own implementation of the POST upload which we used first) fails after some minutes. We use this curl command line:

                        curl --progress-bar --verbose -v -o "\\qnap\Data\Video\Microsoft Video Indexer\upload-file-to-microsoft-vi.log" -X POST "https://videobreakdown.azure-api.net/Breakdowns/Api/Partner/Breakdowns?name=TestLong&privacy=Private&language=de-DE&externalId=TestLongId&metadata=Metadata&description=TestLongDescription&indexingPreset=AudioOnly" -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -H "Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: ourkey" -F "data=@DE-Long.mp4"

                        always after 7 minutes (if we use a different api key then it is always after 2 minutes) the upload fails:

                        • Spherical (or 360 or 3D) video analytics for meetings.

                          I want to use this Video Indexer in a meeting or a conference.
                          Put a 360 degree camera at the center of the meeting and make a record of the proceeding by uploading the 360video to the Video Indexer.

                          You can see who spoke what and who is not speaking.

                          I tried to upload some 360 videos downloaded from youtube to see if it works. However it would be shown as a distorted rectangular video and the people on the edge of the rectangular won't be recognized as a face.

                          • Language mess-up: simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese

                            Bug1: when I select Simplified Chinese, the biography text display Traditional Chinese. Obviously, Video Indexer was not localized well, from my point of view (I have 8 year g11n and localization experience in IBM and Amazon, lol).
                            Bug2: the tag "hot sweet baby" was translated wrong totally in Simplified Chinese, it should be translated by Bing or MS Cognative Services.

                              • Integrae customvision.ai into video indexer

                                Would be nice if the customvision.ai classifiers can be integrated with the videoindexer - eg: create a classifier for certain objects and the video indexer can highlight / extract those specific objects from a video stream.

                                    • Add phrases that Indexer should not censor.

                                      There may be some phrases that, in the context of the video, Indexer should not censor with asterisks (*********). For example, a video of a church service should not have the words "Jesus Christ" censored, as it's a perfectly acceptable use for this type of video.

                                      It would be great if we could add a list of words or phrases to not censor, or if the censoring could be turned off.

                                      • Complement Face recognition with OCR In Video Indexer

                                        It seems the current API uses celebrity services to tag people in videos. So, it fails cases when there is no celebrity and it tags wrongly some people. But there is a way to improve it. In a video when a person's clip detected it should also check OCR on that time and try to see if mention person's Name, designation and that can be may be linked to facebook, linkedin, twitter, instagram etc. other social apis to detect the person properly

                                        • Ability to export OCRed text from videos to be including in a VTT file.

                                          We have a class of videos which are not relying on a voice over. but instead, burned-in text. This presents a problem for people with vision problems. Would it be possible to export the OCR text as a timed text file like VTT (like you can do with the speech to text VTT file) so that it could be used to generate an accessible version of the video when it is this type of video production?
