      • People camera focusing time based on Face API eyes data

        People focusing camera is very important on some senario like face-to-face e-learning as meta-data. Face API support detect several eye point and hopefully Video Indexer calcrate summary it like "camera focusing time".

        • 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.

          • Ability to download created highlights videos (as mp4 file)

            Using the VI UX to edit a highlights clip is great, but I'd like the ability to download that file that I create from VI as an mp4 file.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                  • Ability to train face model for people not matched by celebrity database

                    The API should expose a way to train a custom face model with provided identification for faces that were not matched against the celebrity database. Additionally, there should be a way to correlate new recognized face ID with previous instances of the unknown face (in customer db).

                    An example API call would include a faceId (retrieved from breakdown), a name (caller provided identification), and an optional CustomId field (for application tracking, which would subsequently be returned in future breakdowns).

                    An additional API call that would be useful would allow a batch training of the model, even before any breakdowns are…

                    • 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.

                        • Ability to train custom Vocabularies

                          We need to have some way to train custom vocabularies or ontologies for a domain. For example, healthcare or legal phrases that may be commonly spoken in videos.

                          If you could provide ontology editing capabilities to allow customers to create their own dictionaries or words and phrases and use that to improve the accuracy of speech to text, that would be awesome.

                            • Use web hooks for indexing job completion notification

                              When I submit a video to be indexed via UploadVideo API method, I'd like to provide a web hook url as a callback mechanism to indicate when a video is done processing. Processing state could also be provided via this web hook mechanism as well, not just to indicate completion.
                              The advantage to this approach is a decoupling of the submission of indexing jobs from the post completion handling. This is important when using Azure Functions since you don't want your functions to be running (polling for progress) for as long as it takes the video indexing job to complete.…

                                      • Update documentation for embedding private videos

                                        https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/video-indexer/video-indexer-embed-widgets

                                        The steps to embed private videos appears outdated. Got a "not authorized" error even though the access token is valid.

                                        The steps described in the API portal seems up to date though, as it worked perfectly.

                                        • Job Process detail (as well as Azure Media Service) and status via API

                                          Video Indexer API(V2) enable us to get video processing status using such as List Videos API, and what status does it show? Because API result doesn't seem to associate to each Azure Media Service jobs which are shown in Azure Portal (or other tools).
                                          We wish if we could get detail jobs and those status as well as Media Service via Video Indexer APIs
