  1. in Bing Videos search, give us the ability to EXCLUDE sources (such as YouTube)

    There is a pretty serious problem with Bing Video search: most of the time, all the results are from YouTube! I and I'm sure many others do not want to just see YouTube results (if we did, we would just go to youtube.com!) , so please give users the ability to exclude sources, this would greatly improve Bing Video search! At the moment, Bing Video search is basically YouTube Video search! Bing Video search is almost useless because we can't exclude YouTube results!

    • Support VK and Vidme

      Suport VK(dot)come and Vid(dot)me. Add them to "source." If you do that then the source column should be like Bing's 'Top sites' column: A horizontal column and then a vertical column drop-down-box. We need more options concerning video sharing sites.

      Google does a better job showing results for Vidme on the web and on the video portal. Bing lacks. Check screenshots.

      Good job on the "My saves" update looks nice and is useable (unlike before).

      • Enable clickable "Playing preview" boxes in the Bing Video portal

        When hovering over a video thumbnail with one's cursor the video will show a preview of the video. Why not allow one to click on the available preview boxes to jump to their specific timeframe? So, I am looking at the preview and the last preview box has something in that timeframe that catches my eye, thus I click on that box and I get jumped into that timeframe.

        • Lost acces to saved videos

          I have a bunch of saves videos in the my saves that I no longer have access to. The page shows the count of saves, but the page tells me I haven't saved anything.

          I have tried to save a new video and the count goes up, but it still tells me I haven't saved anything yet.

          What gives and how do I fix this?

              • Would Love To Have Better Access To YouTube Channels On Bing

                I mean: I can click the channel's name that Bing provides by the hyperlink, and I can modify the date to 24 hours to get SORT OF CLOSE to the latest uploads of that channel, but that's not good enough since it does not show uploads that have been uploaded on that day The closest I've seen is videos from 3 days ago...

                I want to be able to access the latest upload. I want use YouTube less, and being able to access a channel's latest upload would do just that.

                Also, when clicking on a channel's name and narrowing…

                      • integration with livestreaming platform, cloud digital video recording (DVR) capability and APIs

                        Bing videos can provides optional encrypted digital video recording through the cloud (similar to youtube live, livestream, FB live, twitch, periscope, Douyu, afreeca and etc - up to 4K or better quality). The Cloud Recording service automatically saves video on a rolling basis, so users can review the past week or month of footage, depending on their plan. All users, with or without the service, can still view the live feed.

                        DVR capabilities can reduce cost of video hosting for CCTV operators and make videos more searchable. It can be operate with flickr biz model (public by default - freemium),…

                        • New Music

                          I like how Music is setup, however if their is new music by an artist I would like to see new songs as well in the music page.
                          Maybe even an alert that says they have new music

                            Hi Kevin,
                            Thanks for your feedback. We agree and are working on this and have it in our backlog. We recently added the ability to filter by a music channel and would like to added these alerts in the future. You can filter by an artist’s channel page today by hovering on one of their videos from the results page and then clicking on their channel name.
                            Thanks for using Bing!

                          • Option to play video in a small window while browsing

                            Provide an option to play a video in a small screen that hovers on top of the video results so that a user can continue to browse while the video is still visible. The visibility can be made available between tabs too so that if a user has multiple tabs open for different things, the video will still be viewable.

                                Videos are great, but awful if you don't hear well. Provide captioning for those of us with a hearing disability. There are over 48 million Americans with hearing loss - many, many more than wheel-chair bound people!!!

                                • Improved video experience

                                  Hi,

                                  Maybe I need to seperate that into multiple ideas, but I just have one vote left... Whatever, that's my idea to improve video.

                                  - In video homepage (US only) when clicking on a video, instead of showing us all search related to this video, we should go directly to that video you clicked on.

                                  - We should be able to "favorite" videos and create custom playlist with them.

                                  - Add video description.

                                  - And as always, I would like video sharing with Bing where I can upload my own video with Microsoft Account and allow people to comments. (maybe…

                                    • When I click the video url, Pause the video in Bing

                                      Sometimes you are watching a video in Bing's video player then you click the video to go the video's website (like youtube) and then you have the video playing in Bing and Youtube. It causes an echoing effect.

                                        • "Play all" button for top songs when searching for an music artist/band videos

                                          For Bing Videos, when searching for a musician/band, why not have a "Play All" button for those top songs suggestions?
