  1. Retention policy and cost: breakdown REST API data available

    How long is breakdown data from REST API retained in Video Indexer service and it is there a cost to store this data?

    What about thumbnail images generated (available from thumbnailUrl)? How long are they stored/available and are there any cost to have them accessible for long term periods?

    PS: I understand that Face API images are available only for 24h after the process generation

  3. Support for different arabic dialects

    VI supports only one arabic dialect i.e. ar-eg. VI should also support other arabian dialects like gulf dialect ar-ae. Is there any plan for supporting different arabic dialects?

  4. Additional Features

    I am using Video Indexer. I am having some suggestions below :

    • The description of Search API is to be more clear. Currently we don’t understand what it searches and what would be output.
    • If the Face API group ID is provided as input, auto update of face names should happen from Face Group ID.
    • The sections (people, brand, keywords…) inside Embedded Insight widget could be collapsible Control.

  5. Video tagging

    Add the ability to manually add custom tags to videos to allow for videos to be categorised or searched by tag.
    There is currently no way to manually organise certain videos into categories/tags.

    The tag meta-data may not be directly related to the content of the video e.g. you may want to create a tag to present all videos with a particular theme or to indentify all videos 'owned' by a rights holder.

  6. Return total number of results in search API endpoint.

    The search API does not return the total number of results for a given search.

    It would be useful to have this so that the total number of results can be shown to the user.
    Also, it would allow us to implement proper search paging (with direct jump to page number), which is currently impossible since we don't know how many results we have.

    It could be added after the nextPage attribute in the JSON results.

    On a similar theme, the search API does not return the original search query. This is not a major issue as this can be…

    People (faces) can be tagged via the API or the UI (at the insights panel of the player page, enable edit and click the pencil next to a name).

  8. Let us train Video Indexer prior to the indexing

    If we were able to train the Indexer with more functionality regarding Faces and Brands we will probably move to Microsoft from Google AI

    Identifing custom faces and brands is already supported in both the UI and API.
    For support please send an email to visupport [at] microsoft [dot] com

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

    Seems to be ok in our testing.

  13. 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?

    Declined  ·  ohadjas responded

    the VI player supports showing auto-translated captions across 54 languages, but only one language at a time.
    If you’d like to show a few languages, you can opt to use the API and another player

  14. Upload hangs at 95% (Large files)

    Hi, I have been trying to upload videos into the indexer but it keeps getting hanged at 95% and restarting at 0%. The video is around 500MB (4 hours long) and video with smaller size (50MB) gets uploaded and indexed.
    Please help.

  16. 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??

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. 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?
