  1. Add thumbnails for the channels plus branding options on each channel

    1) On the list of channels add the option (per channel) to set a thumbnail image. In our company we brand every group and they each have logos that we would like to add along-side the text on the Channel Selection screen.

    2) Within each channel it would be good to add more branding/customization options such as customizable spotlight positions or background images settings

      • Upload from synchronised folder - Drop folder location

        It would be useful to configure a local folder to auto-upload, such as a synchronised drop folder.

        • Site Mailboxes should be available to be configured by default for primary domain instead of defaulting to the first domain alphabetically.

          Currently, when a corporate with multiple domains activates a SharePoint Online site mailbox, the email address assigned belongs to the first domain alphabetically.

          If ZCompany is a nationally known recognized brand and they purchase a small, unknown ACompany; then ZCompany attempts to create a site mailbox to collaborate with clients, it will be created at @Acompany.com.onmicrosoft.com - a brand unrecognizable to the customers of ZCompany.

          At first we thought this was a problem, but after escalating through Premier Support, SharePoint Support, Office 365 Email Support, and our Technical Account Manager, we were assured by all parties that this is the…

          • I would like the video uploaded in Office365 Video to be playable in an offline environment

            I hope you to improve Office365 Video's playback feature to enable me to play the video in an offline environment, to give an example of how I see an advance, not by making my users download the video uploaded in Office365 Video, but by keeping caches within device used.

                • Free service

                  Hi,

                  I think Office video could be a great alternative to Youtube. With the nice UI interface from Microsoft office and a video sharing system better than youtube, I think it could be great for every Microsoft user without Office365, and for free!

                  Thank you to read our feedback

                  • Allow videos to count against our Azure storage rather than SharePoint storage.

                    Instead of having videos count against our current SharePoint quota, have them count towards our Azure quota.

                      • Ability to Specify Which Videos Will/Won't Appear in Trending Results

                        Would like ability to specify whether a video appears in Trending results. (Similar to the yes/no option for search results). Owners of highly confidential videos (highly regulated healthcare content) do not like seeing them in the Trending view, even though the owners are the only ones who see them there. The Trending results would have more value if results were primarily public within our organization. (Training, town halls, guest speakers, etc.)

                          Hello, the “trending videos” section is security-trimmed, meaning that only people who have permission to see the videos will see them showing up in “trending videos”, otherwise they will see another set of videos that are trending. Is that sufficient for you?

                        • Ability to move video's between channels

                          There's no obvious way to move a video from one channel to another. It appears I need to delete the video and upload it into the correct channel as a work around?

                            The video view statistics is great for admins but we should have the option to hide the actual statistics to end users. We don't want low view count to influence participation or discourage the use of O365 Video

                              Hi

                              It would be nice if you were able to use the embedded codes from videos in PowerPoint, since both applications are a part of Office 365.

                                The alerts feature and the RSS feature are available in all standard out of the box libraries and lists in SharePoint and would be a great feature for video channels.

                                • Private Site Collections Vanity URLs - SP Admin Center

                                  It would be great to have the ability to create host named site collections for private sites. In the first example, there is a completely new vanity URL. The second example is if the first is not possible. Changing the domain prefix if you change company names for whatever reason. Ours has random letters attached to the end of the company name. The only way to change this currently is to create a new O365 subscription with the new domain and migrate everything over manually.

                                  Examples: <companyname1>.sharepoint.com change to intranet.<companyname1>.com

                                  or at least, <companyname1>.sharepoint.com change to <companyname2>.sharepoint.com

                                    B. 再生時間は 4 時間程度
                                    C. ファイル サイズは 1.5GB 程度

                                    A. であっても、B. や C. が少ない動画においてはエラーは発生せず、正常に再生できます。また、A. で MP4 ではなく WMV 動画に変換すると、B. や C. に該当する場合であっても、エラーは発生せず正常再生が可能となっています。

                                    弊社では上記の方法で作成した MP4 形式動画にて Office 365 Video サイトを運用していきたいと考えております。調査のうえ、エラーが発生しないような動作に変更いただきたく、要望いたします。

                                      Is it possible or would it be possible to create 'sub-channels' in the O365 video channel? If we could break up the videos uploaded into an organised structure it would be helpful in a teaching context.

                                        It would be nicer to have Office Video as a Corporate LMS where we can track video completion, Quiz results, etc. This is a huge opportunity for such a nice service.
