  1. 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…

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. 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?

  10. Extract numbers and text frame by frame and export

  11. 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??

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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?

  16. 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?

  18. 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!

  19. 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

  20. 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.
