  1. APi for editing breakdown data

    Currently we can edit via VI UI breakdown data, such as OCR texts, captioned texts, and so on.
    Do you have a plan to expose those "Edit" functions (not "Edit" UI) as APIs to update a specific part of breakdown data?

    Thanks,
    -Shige

  4. Localization for search, sentimental analytics

    There are some different with English and other content. We know some part of feature of based service like Azure Media Analytics and Cognitive Services don't support many language. Please consider the easy to use international scenario especially search, localization support is helpful.

  5. Integrate cognitive service customer services feature

    To improve initial output, this integration make more powerful story - especially, Custom Vision Services, Custom Speech Service, Translator Hubs.
    That allow better first output accuracy by each domain topic.

  6. Arrange Azure Media Indexer 2 output charactor to normal language sentence for more accurate translation

    The Azure Media Indexer 2 output each line of caption file for screen. That broke sentence. We need to merge some them to create manful sentence for more accurate translation.
    If we support Translatoin capability in this API, please consider to this feature.

  7. Integrate Face Blurring into the Video Indexer UX/Widget

    Create a Widget or Interface ability to select a specific face within a video to blur. Create a new flag to "Blur All Faces" upon Upload of a new Video. Create a flag that can be saved to "Always Blur This Selected Face" for any future video that contains that face.

  9. I can not delete the video.

    ErrorType":"BREAKDOWN_NOT_FOUND","Message":"Playlist \'ce83a1cc66\' was not found."}

    I tried to delete the video in the video indexer, so I created the code to automatically erase it using py code, but why do I get an error message in the cmd code window when only one movie is found?

  10. Landmark Recognition For Videos

    Looking for the ability to recognise landmarks (e.g. Eiffel Towel, Sydney Harbour Bridge, etc..) present in videos that are uploaded and stored within Video Indexer.

    I believe this capability exists within the Computer Vision API today (9,000 landmarks when I last checked)

  11. Import existing edited transcripts or caption files

    The ability to upload an already edited transcript will enable those with existing libraries to move over content without the need for further human editing.

    Ideally VI would apply the timings, and insert them in their appropriate place on the Transcript panel.

  12. Create an Azure Media Services 'Media Processor' as a wrapper for Video Indexer.

    Media Processors in Azure Media Services are the components you can string together in a pipeline to build a media workflow, including transcoding and media analytics, etc. In order for Video Indexer to more cleanly integrate with existing media workflows, there should be a VI Media Processor that can be added to regular Azure Media Services jobs. This way, I can create an Azure Media Services job in a few lines of code that will upload a video, transcode a mezzanine format such as ProRes into a multi-bitrate mp4, generate a shortened version for a video thumbnail using the video…

  13. Use web hooks for indexing job completion notification

    When I submit a video to be indexed via UploadVideo API method, I'd like to provide a web hook url as a callback mechanism to indicate when a video is done processing. Processing state could also be provided via this web hook mechanism as well, not just to indicate completion.
    The advantage to this approach is a decoupling of the submission of indexing jobs from the post completion handling. This is important when using Azure Functions since you don't want your functions to be running (polling for progress) for as long as it takes the video indexing job to complete.…

  14. Disable quarantine for strictly private video

    Videos that are used for preparation of subtitles for commercial movies/series are sometimes quarantined by the VI (i.e. Dr.House). The VI could be used to provide a transcript of the video which will be manually corrected/adapted to a high quality subtitle file. However in this scenario the VI shall not put commercial movies/series into quarantine because people preparing subtitles always get video material even before it is shown in theaters or on TV and they would like to send it to the VI to get the transcript.

    One way to avoid putting videos into quarantine is to introduce "Strictly private"…

  15. Provide an API function that returns the list of supported languages

    It would be useful to get the list of supported languages to be able to display available languages in the UI of the application using the VI.

  16. Allow setting language to "None" to skip speech recognition for unsupported languages

    If the audio language is not supported by the VI then the breakdown might still be useful but speech recognition does not make any sense in such case. Setting the language to "None" or "Other" or "Unsupported" would be useful.

  17. Add edit ability for transcripts to correct auto generated transcripts

    Inevitably there are going to be words that are misidentified by speakers and it would be great if there was the ability to correct the speech to text manually. Perhaps this could be used to feed back into the model for training as well.

    This would make the transcript feature much more useful as basically it could function as an assisted transcription tool where all an editor would have to do would be to supervise the generated transcription correct the parts that were not correct and save.

  18. Allow tagging of faces that are not detected to existing entities

    In the case that a celebrity is not detected by the AI but is in fact in the video, it would be great to allow the tagging to an existing entity.

  19. Ability to re-run Cognitive process

    The backend Cognitive Services is continuously improving and the results will likely be improved when the same video will be uploaded again.
    Re-running cognitive processing to already uploaded videos will meet the situation.

  20. Ability to train face model for people not matched by celebrity database

    The API should expose a way to train a custom face model with provided identification for faces that were not matched against the celebrity database. Additionally, there should be a way to correlate new recognized face ID with previous instances of the unknown face (in customer db).

    An example API call would include a faceId (retrieved from breakdown), a name (caller provided identification), and an optional CustomId field (for application tracking, which would subsequently be returned in future breakdowns).

    An additional API call that would be useful would allow a batch training of the model, even before any breakdowns are…
