  1. frame accuracy

    VI returns timecodes with hundredths of seconds (i.e. 00:00:07.2400000, so 7 and 24 hundredths of seconds). If we know the video frame-rate (i.e. 24, 23.98), could we derive the specific frame by multiplying the decimal times the frame rate? Or would that not be reliable to convert to HH:MM:SS:FF?

  3. Provide changelog for the insights versions in the video index

    The insights structure in the videoindex has a version, but there is not information on the changes between the versions.
    A changelog would be nice.

  4. Why also not analyse photos?

    lots of the AI can also be used for photos. This will be very usefull in one solution (all you Video and photo media in one engine!)

  6. Thumbnails dont work

    I have created a solution where I analyse a video of Satya Nadella. I get back the thumbnail:

    https://www.videoindexer.ai/api/Thumbnail/f2287cb6b9/72413271-6d74-4dc8-b43f-35b8704f822b

    Which is invalid. But if I look at the url in the widget then it uses the format:

    /api/v2/accounts/{account-d}/videos/{video-id}/thumbnails/{thumbnail-id}

    Why are they different?

  7. Failed job cannot be deleted

    Using the API we submitted a job and while it was being indexed we deleted the job via the API. We ended up with receiving a mail that the job failed because of invalid video format. However the job is now still listed and it cannot be deleted via the API. The failed job is still displayed in the Webgui and it can also not be deleted there.

    Please provide a way to delete such a failed job.

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

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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).

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
