2 weeks of CCTV footage to index

As part of a police burglary investigation, I have 2 weeks of CCTV footage to index. I notice that Azure Video Indexer has a limit of 4 hours.
I have 100s of video files, some of which are above 4 hours in length.

Is there any way around this limitation?

thanks
Kris

Up to 10 attachments (including images) can be used with a maximum of 3.0 MiB each and 30.0 MiB total.

Are you looking to use the features of Azure Video Indexer or just a place to store/upload the files?

I'd like to use the features of video indexer. i.e., upload the videos, have then indexed overnight and then view the highlights.

There is no workaround within Azure Video Indexer. I know this isn't an ideal solution, but just a recommendation:

  • Perhaps you could use video editing software to chop up the longer videos into smaller length videos.

that's a shame. Seems like Video Indexer could one day really help with this type of thing.
I'll try chopping up the videos; seems like a trivial limitation that prevents some seriously useful scenarios.

I think your feedback makes sense and you should think about sharing it with the Azure team:
