  2. Complement Face recognition with OCR In Video Indexer

    It seems the current API uses celebrity services to tag people in videos. So, it fails cases when there is no celebrity and it tags wrongly some people. But there is a way to improve it. In a video when a person's clip detected it should also check OCR on that time and try to see if mention person's Name, designation and that can be may be linked to facebook, linkedin, twitter, instagram etc. other social apis to detect the person properly

  4. Add phrases that Indexer should not censor.

    There may be some phrases that, in the context of the video, Indexer should not censor with asterisks (*********). For example, a video of a church service should not have the words "Jesus Christ" censored, as it's a perfectly acceptable use for this type of video.

    It would be great if we could add a list of words or phrases to not censor, or if the censoring could be turned off.

  5. Ability to export OCRed text from videos to be including in a VTT file.

    We have a class of videos which are not relying on a voice over. but instead, burned-in text. This presents a problem for people with vision problems. Would it be possible to export the OCR text as a timed text file like VTT (like you can do with the speech to text VTT file) so that it could be used to generate an accessible version of the video when it is this type of video production?

  7. Ability to add custom metadata and search up on them

    We have preexisting metadata for all our videos, could you please add option to import that along when we upload the video or attach it to a video as xml or json. Also once added could you please make the metadata searchable something like Slug: ANCDEF or Shot date: 01/01/2017

  8. Provide language captions in the video menu by default

    Automatically have translations for the languages in the video list. Right now you have to select the language on the right hand side prior to it being listed on the video. Then it doesn't save it the next time you visit the video. For example, if I embed it which you can see I did at https://www.learnitlive.com/class/11200/Thyroid-Cooking-Class-Example,
    the only option is for English captions. Ideally there would be a whole range of languages to choose which is available when you come to the video indexer site.

  10. Open source or provide the sample code for making our own videoindexer.ai using your APIs

    Could you please open source the code or give a sample code used for making videondexer.ai . We don't want it to be hosted externally. it would be internal to us with some customizations but the APIs will be allowed to connect to you to upload the file or carry out all the funcitons. Also this would enable us to do a quick start instead of replicating thats already available from scratch.

  12. highlights from multiple sources

    I would like to be able to create a highlight reel from several sources. Say, for example, I'm recording customer interviews on a particular topic. I would like to be able quickly find all the times all the customers mentioned something, and put together a highlight real with all those mentions.

  13. Ability to download created highlights videos (as mp4 file)

    Using the VI UX to edit a highlights clip is great, but I'd like the ability to download that file that I create from VI as an mp4 file.

  15. LTI Integration

    Building an LTI integration would help education by carrying user details over. Once this is enabled more insights could be built such as comments, likes and analytics around who is viewing, what parts they are watching etc

  17. Enable Embed of both video and cognitive insights

    At present you can only embed either the player or cognitive insights into a webpage. There should be an option to embed both the player and cognitive insights.

    Without this, if you search for text in the insights it won't play the part of the video you've searched for as there's no video at all against it.

  18. New Search Engines

    Wow! This is an amazing service. I used a less capable system before, but I love this new service. So many possibilities with this product. The speed was excellent. UI was awesome. Very nice work!!
    How about a new search engine to locate text within millions of videos, OR find all the videos with certain text in it !!!!!!!! so cool.

  19. Can't reach the API from Web Portal?

    It took me two hours to find the Breakdown API; the help steps at (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cognitive-services/video-indexer/video-indexer-use-apis#subscribe-to-the-api) seemed to imply I was supposed to go to the VI Web Portal, then click on a Products tab that would bring me there, but I couldn't find the link if there is one.

    I can access the breakdown API from https://videobreakdown.portal.azure-api.net/products, but it's not really clear that you're supposed to reach it from a direct link rather than the portal.
