  1. Timecode as URL parameter

    I'd like to be able to link to a timecode position in a video,

    e.g. https://www.videoindexer.ai/media/VideoIDHere?t=123

    where 123 is the timecode.

  3. Index geographies or locations

    Provide the ability to index a particular location. For example, will the search index respect geotagging?

  4. Timecode wrong for flac file

    I uploaded a flac file and downloaded the transcript. The timecode is wrong after every 5 minutes. It jumped from
    00:04:56.200 --> 00:04:59.640
    to
    00:11:51.484 --> 00:11:59.818
    Then it jumped from
    00:16:49.214 --> 00:16:50.964
    to
    00:23:42.688 --> 00:23:47.494

  5. How can I improve transcript quality?

    I uploaded my private audio-only media (mp3). The generated transcript is completely different from the original ones.
    I understand this service is a preview, but I'd like to improve the quality if there's anything to do on my side.
    Is there any guideline to improve the transcript quality?
    also, it's good to generate error/warning message when the AI recognizes transcript quality is bad.

  7. Generate subtitles in different languages

    I've done a really good test from a french tv documentary. It will be very usefull to select différent language for subtitle, instead of generate only subtitle in the native language of the media.
    Thanx

  9. Improve your Video Indexer video thumbs!

    Please, as a Microsoft "fan", I can't let this happen. The main page is full of incredible BAD snapshots from videos. I think this is NOT how we sell a product. See the attached snapshot from the https://www.videoindexer.ai/?tab=samples.

  12. Add New Upload Parameter for Start Timecode offset

    I'd like a new parameter in the "Upload" API that allows me to set a Starting Timecode offset. Right now, Video Indexer uses 00:00:00 always as the starting timecode value, but I'd like to be able to programmatically set the starting timecode as something else. If you can read SMPTE timecode, perfect, but if not, allow me to set the starting value as something other than 00:00:00.

  13. Flagging and De-Duplication of Identical Content

    Duplication of content is a problem for 100% of media and entertainment facilities. If you can identify duplicate content before migration to archive it’s a HUGE ROI benefit that would accelerate and drive adoption. Essentially detect via frame comparisons or audio that the content is identical and somehow flag it so it doesn’t archive duplicate content?

  14. Allow to put custom data via Custom Vision/Speech services

    Face API collaboration is great to reduce update data. It super help to collaborate custom vision services OR custom speech services to allow custom data input space.

    headers = {

  16. Language mess-up: simplified Chinese and Traditional Chinese

    Bug1: when I select Simplified Chinese, the biography text display Traditional Chinese. Obviously, Video Indexer was not localized well, from my point of view (I have 8 year g11n and localization experience in IBM and Amazon, lol).
    Bug2: the tag "hot sweet baby" was translated wrong totally in Simplified Chinese, it should be translated by Bing or MS Cognative Services.

  18. curl file upload with POST fails after some minutes (provide resumable upload)

    Trying to upload a large mp4 file to Video Indexer using curl (and also our own implementation of the POST upload which we used first) fails after some minutes. We use this curl command line:

    curl --progress-bar --verbose -v -o "\\qnap\Data\Video\Microsoft Video Indexer\upload-file-to-microsoft-vi.log" -X POST "https://videobreakdown.azure-api.net/Breakdowns/Api/Partner/Breakdowns?name=TestLong&privacy=Private&language=de-DE&externalId=TestLongId&metadata=Metadata&description=TestLongDescription&indexingPreset=AudioOnly" -H "Content-Type: multipart/form-data" -H "Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key: ourkey" -F "data=@DE-Long.mp4"

    always after 7 minutes (if we use a different api key then it is always after 2 minutes) the upload fails:

    * Trying 40.123.47.145...
    * TCP_NODELAY set

  19. Integrae customvision.ai into video indexer

    Would be nice if the customvision.ai classifiers can be integrated with the videoindexer - eg: create a classifier for certain objects and the video indexer can highlight / extract those specific objects from a video stream.

  20. Spherical (or 360 or 3D) video analytics for meetings.

    I want to use this Video Indexer in a meeting or a conference.
    Put a 360 degree camera at the center of the meeting and make a record of the proceeding by uploading the 360video to the Video Indexer.

    You can see who spoke what and who is not speaking.

    I tried to upload some 360 videos downloaded from youtube to see if it works. However it would be shown as a distorted rectangular video and the people on the edge of the rectangular won't be recognized as a face.
