    • Subchannels or Subfolders to Better Organize Video Collections

      We noticed that the videos can be organized by channel. We believe that as more videos are added, they will need to be organized better. Rather than adding additional channels, being able to create folders within a channel would be nice. If channels are designed to separate teams or projects, subchannels (folders) would be great.

      Thanks.

      • Allow custom metadata fields

        I had been following this service very closely since release at SharePoint Conference 2014. I was very disappointed to read (http://www.itunity.com/article/office-365-video-first-release-696) that the first release would not support custom metadata fields (all field types, including managed metadata). Our company was/is looking at o365 and this is one of the drivers. Unfortunately no custom metadata makes this a no-go for us.

        • Viewer analytics and reporting

          When thinking about using Office 365 Video to deliver videos that are used for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit where consumption of material must be tracked it would be great to have analytics/reports that show:
          - Who consumed the content
          - When it was consumed
          - How much of it was consumed
          - That none of it was skipped or FF'd.

            Thanks for everyone who voted and helped us with validating scenarios. Sorry if we didn’t get a chance to engage with you at a later stage.

            We shipped the first version which has view counts, visitor counts, and drop-off charts per video.

            We don’t have a clear start date on next phase of improvements yet. Thanks for your patience.

          • support live streaming

            instead of uploading recorded videow, any plan to support live video?

            • Ability to move videos between channels

              Here is a scenario we have faced:

              After we upload a series video to a channel, we realized that the channel is redundant. We want to move all or some of the videos and all of their metadata and their yammer conversations to a different channel.

              Is there an easy way to move videos between channels?

                  We are working on the very first version of the solution and close to push to customers: https://office365video.uservoice.com/forums/273864-o365-video-feedback/suggestions/6767424-upload-your-own-closed-captions

                  We’ve updated the status on the above specific ask, and will update it when it rolls out to prod.

                  We don’t have a concrete plan on starting on the automatic caption from Azure Media Indexer. More details to come. Thanks for your patience.

                • Learning Management System Integration

                  If this is going to be used for Educational institutions, linking with learning management system providers is a must. This way these tools can manage access and security that is in line with institutional policy such as course licensing, copyright and student privacy within the course framework.

                  • Automatically publish recorded Lync sessions

                    Lync can record content and save it to a local video file. I would be great if that workflow was streamlined to easily push that video into Office 365 video. It would be even better if the meeting invite included a link that points to the eventual URL of that video so if I miss a meeting, I know where to go watch it.

                            Allow for embedding videos from other sources like YouTube and Vimeo into the channel. There are thousands of great training videos available through these services that could easily be added into new or existing channels. Or, if you find a great news video about your company or industry, you could embed that into a channel and share it out via Yammer.

                              Kiosk licenses for Sharepoint are pitched as 'read-only' style users of the service, so should be able to view videos shared by Office Video. As an organisation with a large kiosk based user group, we will have to turn off Office video for all as it would just cause confusion why majority can not view.

                              • Ability to sort and filter videos within a channel

                                A simple SORT ascending / descending function would help to deliver training videos in logical order, we call this a “learning path”. Off course the title has the video number in it like: "0080 Create Formulas in a Worksheet" "0081 The Sum Function." The ultimate solution would be to have a field that says "sort" or “rank in number order” then add a button "Play the next video in order".

                                      This functionality has allowed me to consume videos via other sharing services in a far more efficient manner (approximately 150% to 200% :) )

                                        • 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.
