  1. 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.

  2. Videos etting hanged at 95% and/or restarting at 0%

    Hi, I have been trying to upload videos onto the indexer but it keeps getting hanged at 95% and/or restarting at 0%, not any one of the videos out of my list of at least 9 videos could be uploaded.

    How should I go about it?

    *The videos are about 2hrs long

  4. Timecode as URL parameter

    I'd like to be able to link to a timecode position in a video,

    e.g. https://www.videoindexer.ai/media/VideoIDHere?t=123

    where 123 is the timecode.

  6. Index geographies or locations

    Provide the ability to index a particular location. For example, will the search index respect geotagging?

  7. Timecode wrong for flac file

    I uploaded a flac file and downloaded the transcript. The timecode is wrong after every 5 minutes. It jumped from
    00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:59.640
    to
    00:11:51.484 --> 00:11:59.818
    Then it jumped from
    00:16:49.214 --> 00:16:50.964
    to
    00:23:42.688 --> 00:23:47.494

  8. 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.

    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.

  10. 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

    Indeed our CDN cache has experienced an issue for a short duration that day which caused the wrong profile pic to show up in some rare cases, but nothing more than that.
    We apologies for the inconvenience

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
