  1. 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.

    • "new" keyword intelligence (i believe even big G doesn't have)

      while searching on the engine as new song as an example, for the user's perspective it gives the result by the new keyword regardless of the year it has been posted. some time we as users get songs of 1990 as new songs. Is it intelligent? or are you expecting the users to manually sort them in recent order by hitting the sort button? That is not intelligent search. This intelligence is not there with popular streaming media surprisingly. Well time for the bing to get this adopt as the leader where as bing can capture lots of searchers traffic…

        Hello, thanks for the great suggestion! It would be very helpful if you can provide a sample query where Bing’s results did not meet your expectations. Thanks and keep your ideas coming!

      • Search for a piece of music using a sound clip

        I often think of a line from a song and cannot remember the name of the whole piece. Bing could listen to me sing the excerpt and then come up with audio and video results of possible matches.

          • "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?

              • Please add headings to the video search results so that a screen reader user can navigate throu them easily.

                Please add headings to the video search results so that a visually impaired user who is using a screen reader would be able to navigate through them easily. Screen reader users usually read a webpage line by line. By adding an HTML heading to each search result, a screen reader user can easily use special shortcuts to quickly jump from result to result, saving a lot of time. This scheme is already employed for Web search results, but video search somehow didn't get the same treatment. Please fix this oversight.

                • For the Hard of Hearing or Deaf

                  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!!!

                    • 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?

                      • Allow more choice or customized choice for video characteristics; when you run out of results, stop

                        The search narrowing characteristics that now are in place for video search often do not fit needs. It would be nice if I could customize them. For instance, Maybe I want to add a video source or exclude all YouTube videos. Sometimes I want a video that is an hour long; the more than 20 minutes makes me weed a lot of stuff I cannot use. Being able to specify or exclude dates would be nice.

                        The other thing that is a bit of a nuisance is that when there are no more results for a search term, a whole…

                            • Create a Transcribe for Audio and Video into Text

                              There is no good, readily available software to transcribe audio or video into text. Adding this feature to bing video would definitely incentivize watching videos on bing's video player, instead of leaving and going to youtube. If someone could download the text, they would stay there to watch their video, so that they could get the text/transcript of the video.

                                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!

                                • Fix Bing Video

                                  I hate when Bing video brings up a tab that looks like Bing Image. The videos should bring you directly to the website where the video is found so that it is easy to navigate the original website and make full screen on tablets easier to access. On my surface, it is nearly impossible to watch Bing Video in full screen because the full screen button is so small.

                                  • 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.

                                      • 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…

                                        • 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…
