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 sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
