The Microsoft Cognitive Services Video API provides cloud based face detection and tracking, and supports detecting motion, stabilizing, and creating thumbnails from video. This API can detect up to 64 human faces; frontal faces provide better results. Additionally, it can be used to stabilize surveillance and shaky videos, and to generate a preview or snapshot of a video. Currently, a free plan that limits transactions to 300 per month per feature is available. The Video API uses JSON format for data exchange, and API Keys for authentication.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
