        • Ability to update posted video in order to retain original URL

          With videos being shared through internal communications and embedded in SharePoint it's important to be able to update existing videos without having to upload them as new posts.

          By retaining the original URL it would give us the ability to make edits without having to worry about the various locations that the video is being featured.

          • Link to View

            For our team it would be very useful to to provide a link to view the video. Kinda like in OneDrive to provide the link to others - externally if needed too.

            • Controls for video size/quality

              Add controls at tenant level to provide max (maybe min) settings for length, bitrate, video file size, etc to avoid excessive storage charges and/or maintain a consistent set of standards (quality, etc) for video files. Perhaps make these overridable at the Channel level.

              • Video titles searchable on substring

                With a video title such as "06.03-FinancialFunctions", searching on "financial" doesn't return a result.

                • PowerShell support would be great. Or at least a way to create channels in bulk.

                  As an education customer we want to organise our channels in classes. We have ~200 classes so bulk creation is important for us.

                  • Sub Channels

                    Great tool. Would be even better if I could create "Sub Channels". Unless We are missing something there seems to be only one level of organization.

                    • Allow date formats other than US

                      At the moment, when you upload a video, the date format is US (i.e. MM/DD/YYYY).

                      This is an issue for countries that use the DD/MM/YYYY format as when you get to a date like 01/09/2015, users will assume that the video was uploaded in September. This video would then be considered newer than a video with a date of 09/01/2015 which would actually have been uploaded in January.

                      SharePoint (i.e. the Platform Office365 Video was built on) can handle regional date formats so there no reason the Video Portal cant either. Its such a simple, yet fundamental, setting that it…

                      • Upload video recording from Skype for Business

                        Would like to have an integration between Skype for Business (SfB) client and O365 Video portal. When a recording is done in the SfB client make it possible to easy upload ("One Click") recorded video to an selected O365 Video Channel. And maybe with the possibility to add some metadata. Use case could be school class recording a lesson with the SfB client.

                        • Ability to download videos for offline viewing on the iOS app

                          I'd like my users to be able to cache an offline copy of the videos that are in the portal for when they are offsite and don't have an internet connection.

                          • Prevent videos from being downloaded

                            At the moment, in the Permissions page, you can restrict some users from seeing the download button. This is not a secure way to protect the video, since if you view the source of the page you can still get the URL and download the original video file.

                            It would be nice if you could really protect the video in some way, so if the Channel admin want to protect the content, an end user cannot download it.

                            Thanks.

                              • Don't show an enlarged thumbnail while the video is buffering

                                Currently when starting a video, for a few seconds an enlarged version of the Thumbnail is shown. Our company videos usually have a carefully designed opening scene (with animated logo, sound effects etc). But now for a few seconds the enlarged thumbnail is shown, making it look clumsy and unprofessional. This behavior is also experienced on the new Stream service.

                                My suggestion: just show a progress indicator on a black background while buffering, and simply start streaming the video when it's ready. This will provide exactly what the user expects to happen: just play the video, nothing more, nothing less.

                                • Way to see NEW videos on the home page of the portal

                                  The "Spotlight" feature is ok, but it would be really handy to display any recently added video via a "New" link. Currently, our users have to KNOW about new content that gets posted. It would be great to have this simple filter. Thanks for listening.

                                      It would be helpful to have the ability to reorder videos once they are uploaded to a channel.

                                      • Hello I want to sync my sharepoint picture library to my PC with OneDrive for Business

                                        Currently it is not possible to sync picture library with OneDrive for Business. For mangement of picture libraries (e.g. change structures, upload new pictures in background) synchronisation would bring a lot of benefits.

                                        • Ability to adjust video playback speed like YouTube

                                          When I watch informational videos on YouTube, I typically will choose to play it at 1.5x speed... I find I can typically process the information faster than the presenter is talking at. I'd like the ability to do the same thing with Office365 Videos as well.
