  1. Give all emotions not just positive negative

    Analyze each frame or one in x frames fully for the 7 emotions your old face emotion recognition gave.
    Return a rolling average of the emotion data as well as JSON.

    The idea is that even if individual frames don;t give you great data a group may act as boosting and give better results.

    • Player widget timecode parameter

      There is currently no way to make the player widget start from a specific timecode.

      On the videoindexer website this functionality is used to jump to a specific point in time from a search result, however there is no parameter on the iframe embed to support this.

          • Two languages of transcripts on screen

            so far, only one language displays on screen. since we have Microsoft Translator, could we show two languages of transcripts in the meanwhile? like video is in English, we could see transcripts both in English and Chinese?

                • VTT output time code based on start time code in video file

                  My customer would like to have VTT file with offset calculated time code when start time code data is included in uploaded video file. Can you consider this kind of function in Video Indexer??

                  • Autoscroll Lock

                    Every time you scroll or edit the transcript it disables the autoscroll and you have to turn it back on again. This is very annoying when editing long transcripts.

                    • Ability to edit transcript timing.

                      When the autogenerated transcript is not correct you are able to edit the words, but there is no way to adjust the timing to make those words be in sync with the video. Please enable the ability to adjust the timing.

                      • Please Add vocabulary adaptation library for various industries

                        We have integrated the API onto our platform and the accuracy of the transcript is important for the success of our pilot. While i read a few blog posts by Dr. Royi on bringing in our own vocabulary to the indexer, with upload option of words and sentences relevant to a specific industry, i was unable to get the desired results. Is there a way we can have some sort of vocabulary adaptation library available for various industries that can probably make the transcript a lot more accurate?

                        Also, it would help if there are are video tutorials available for…

                        • Max characters per VTT line - can we control max characters per line in VTT file

                          For the best user experiences, a limitation of max number of characters per line in VTT file would be helpful for better reading and showing in the expected subtitling area in the video picture.

                          Can you give some control to limit max number of characters per line in VTT file?

                              • Allow bulk upload and bulk download in the Video Indexer web application

                                It would be fantastic to be able to bulk upload and then bulk download selected video clips in the web portal.
                                I am looking at using Video Indexer as a video library for my entire video library (3tb) and without this functionality it would take forever!

                                  if there is more than one person speaking at the same time, video indexer only resolves transcription for one (random) speaker. ideally, it needs to detect many speakers at the same time, and return what is each one speaking

                                  • confidence level

                                    For transcript (audio, OCR), how can I query a summary of confidence level for each? For content model customization of Brand and Language, same question? Lastly, how can I determine which group of language model text files was most pertinent? I wish to automate the workflow where I 1) submit language model txt file samples, 2) submit sample video files, 3) query confidence level, if lower than threshold, then 4) submit different language model txt file samples, and so on until confidence level is acceptable.

                                    • Are mixed languages supported?

                                      Polyglotism: via API/Portal, please consider supporting multiple languages within 1 source video or audio input? IE: Within 1 video file, recognizable text and speech are in English and Spanish. In another, French and Italian. Thanks. Today, I run the video twice and semi-automatically merge the results, discarding the mistakes.

                                        • 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.
