  1. 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?

  2. Merge Confidence data output into VTT file

    Currently Azure Media Indexer (backend Speech-to-Text processor of Video Indexer) can output Confidence data in VTT file line by line. Could you please merge the confidence data into the output VTT file from Video Indexer?

  4. 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!
    Thanks!

  5. support more than one speaker speaking at the same time

    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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Add technical data of video to breakdown

    Add technical video metadata to breakdown, e.g. framerate, format, codecs, per track information, exact duration, resolution, aspect ratio, bitrate, start timecode ...

  9. 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.

  10. A callbackUrl forcreate linguistic model

    Hi please add a parameter callbackurl like in post method api to create linguistic model api, sothat reindex breakdown can be easier . since waituntilready is true/false state is waiting. so if a callback is provided we can easily reindex breakdowns.

  13. 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.

  16. Learning Ability

    When I alter the transcript does this improve the learning ability on future uploads? At the moment the projects I'm working on are complex and the transcript needs a lot of alteration. Or do I need to add a lot of detail into the content model?

  17. Multiple users have the ability to edit transcripts on the same account

    When there more than one user accessing the account, at the moment there doesn't seem to be the ability for the second user to save the edited transcript even when working on another video source. (save button doesn't exist only reload source).

  18. 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.
