Azure media services provides a set of powerful services to generate subclips from existing videos and streams, but they can be difficult to use without a good front-end tool for selecting that perfect moment out of a long video. For example, picking the exact frame that a scene changes can be painstaking and time consuming, and the task gets increasingly more complex with a live stream. We have also heard from many customers that they need a free tool to integrate and plug in to an existing workflow, whether that is a full blown video content management system VCMS or a simple in house asset listing page. Video Editor Plugin for Azure Media Player is our effort to address many of these issues by creating a client tool designed to aid in the creation of subclips and dynamic manifests for Azure Media Services. This plugin improves on the workflow by giving an embeddable interface for video clip creation, thumbnail selection, and provides additional flexibility in integration. This plugin is now released in as a free preview, and we look forward to your feedback to continually improve this product.
