  1. Allow permissions to be set on the video itself.

    Currently the permissions can only be set at the channel. This works well for default access but there is a need to be able to secure videos to a smaller group of people or a few individuals. Creating a channel every time there is an new access requirement would create a very unmanageable video portal.

  3. Allow rich text formatting of video description

    The description field doesn't preserve formatting - for example return characters, hyperlinks, bold, etc.

  7. Presenting a video in a Lync Meeting

    Similar to uploading and 'streaming' a PowerPoint file in a Lync Meeting, providing the ability to upload and present a video from Office 365 Video in a Lync Meeting. The effect should be that the video is consistently streamed as is slide transitions and animations when presenting an uploaded PowerPoint file.

  8. Improve Video Processing / Transcoding Time - Too Slow

    Video processing is VERY slow, processing takes too long. 45 minute video still processing after almost an hour after I uploaded it.

  9. Simple video editing functionality

    We have an increasing demand for an internal video portal, where O365 Video would from an IT perspective be great.
    However the business requires that they are able to do some simple editing on their video files after they have uploaded them. Simple editing would be features such as cutting off the first and last seconds of the video, where the user is fumbling with the smart phone, plus maybe merging two videos into one.

  10. Jump to time or "Start at time" in video from URL

    It would be great to be able to jump to a specific point in time in a video based on the URL. This would make it easy to embed links to specific topics in a video in the description text.

  11. Add information to Video portal front page and channel front page

    It would be useful to have some kind of "free-text-information-box" in Video portal home page to describe what this portal is about and also some "webparts" to put links to video guidelines/instructions/contact persons. Same applies to each channel front page: it would be useful to describe what this channel is about and also add contact persons etc. There will be many channels and there is need to somehow describe what each channel is for and who is the "channel admin/manager".

  13. Allow Office 365 Groups (i.e. unified groups) to be used to assign permission to Video Channel

    Currently, when you assign permission to a Video Channel, a unified group cannot be used "yet" per the message. Is this going to be allowed in the near future?

  14. Video tagging

    It would be really helpful to be able to tag these vids with managed metadata.

    Otherwise, it looks fantastic!

  15. Easy embed/link from Video 365 to CRM Online

    I want an easy way to embed Video365 files, including a search page, into CRM Online using iFrames.

    Currently, the use of dynamic iFrames requre the Video file UUID to be present within the CRM Record.

  16. ability to embed videos ondesignated domains, i.e Moodle

    ability to embed videos ondesignated domains, i.e Moodle, own website etc.

    We use Moodle for our LMS until Microsoft can come up with an SharePoint Equivalent, and would like to be able to embed videos into Moodle, or our public facing website. However we don't want videos being embed all over the net, only to domains that are Video Admin approved.

  18. Embed a channel's Spotlight videos frame.

    We're starting to use Video channels for sharing our recorded meetings internally. It's working really well.
    I embed the most recent video on our team site after a meeting, for easy access.
    I'd like to embed the "Spotlight videos" just once in my Team site using embed code. Then I can control what appears on the Team site by setting the Spotlight videos from the channel settings.
