Use media thumbnail as image for LMS embed
When I view an LMS page where EchoVideo media is embedded, it can take a long time to load on the page (longer than comparable systems). Given that all EchoVideo media has a thumbnail (auto-generated or manually selected) then it seems to make sense that this could be surfaced when the page loads?
Livestream without Recording
We have a campus-wide need to be able to livestream without creating a capture or recording. Our faculty has voiced concerns about where their content ends up after recording. Students are able to download captures through our LMS and will in some cases use this as an alternative to joining the class in real time. As they're all aware that they are being recorded, classroom discussion is also significantly restrained.
Out of Sync transcripts for edited videos
When I make edits, like chopping or removing portions of a video, the transcript can fall out of sync with the edited video. I need a simple option/button in the editor to confirm if the transcript text aligns with my video edits, and the possibility of having tags "synced, edited" added to the videos would greatly help.
Admin Privileges for User Accounts
As an admin, it would be most helpful to be able to access user accounts. Especially in the event of the employee leaving, or assisting someone with troubleshooting. It would be great to "go to user, select 'act as,' and be able to see/use as user if needed.
Automatic thumbnail - set capture time
The automatic thumbnail capture is currently set so it misses the title slide staff usually have at the start of the video. We would like to set at an institutional level this thumbnail capture time so it is earlier.
Prevent Default Downloading of Videos & Transcripts
PLEASE make it so that there is NO way for students to download videos without explicit permission, irrespective of platform or app. When giving students access, I can double-check the content, but many classroom captures contain other students' comments when they speak to me about their issues, etc. Furthermore, students should NOT be able to copy-paste the transcript, by default. We are happy to give access as needed, but many have learned to submit transcripts to AI for it to respond to assigned questions. That defeats the whole purpose of teaching-learning that EchoVideo was developed to assist.
audio background noise reduction when recording video
create the ability to automatically reduce background noise when recording video in echo capture - similar to zoom background noise reduction.
Allow the Student to select the font size in the Transcript window
As a visually impaired student, it would be nice if I could increase the size of the font in the transcript window. I can zoom in with the browser, but I would prefer for the font to get larger instead of zooming in and everything on the page getting larger.
Recycle bin sort function to sort entire contents of recycle bin
We have noticed when recovering captures from the recycle bin that the items in the recycle bin are returned in a random order. In addition to this, the table sort function only applies to the items shown on the current page. This means if we are looking for a capture from a certain date for example, we need to cycle through every page of results and scan the page until the capture we are looking for is randomly returned. We would like the sort function to apply to the entire contents of the recycle bin, so that we can quickly and easily identify the captures that we are looking for.
Automatically Delete or make Inactive - Instructors that havent logged in within a certain period of time
I have instructors that have Active accounts that no longer work in our institution. It is impossible for me to check individually through all of the accounts to manually delete inactive users. And trying to export a usable list of Active Instructor roles in Echo, for an email group, is no longer helpful. So it would be great to be able to automatically MAKE INACTIVE users that havent logged in to echo for 2+years or had any of their content used within that timeframe (beyond the deletion/archival policies set for media content.)
