It is important that we can easily embed a video from the video portal to other pages, e.g., a SharePoint page.506 votes
Embeding a video outside of the video portal is now available. You can embed videos into sharepoint online pages or any other web page where you have single sign on (SSO) setup.

Or grab the embed code via REST API:
Possibility to download a video in different qualities for offline use, something like channel9.msdn.com387 votes
We’ve finished the feature to allow you downloading the original videos uploaded to Office 365 Video. The channel owner can set which permission group (channel owners, channel editors, or channel viewers) can download the videos inside his/her channel. The download button will show up for the groups specified by channel owner, on the video player page.
This feature has rolled out to “First Release” tenants, and soon to all production.
Thanks for your patience. We’d love to hear what you think of it.
In SharePoint it is easy to setup a Thumbnail image from the video itself but this isn't shown on the screen right now.333 votes
We are in the process of rolling out this feature. It will allow you to pick the video thumbnail from 5 pre-set images, or upload your own image.
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.198 votes
We completed this feature. Office 365 Enterprise K1/K2 users now have view only access to the O365 Video portal directly.
I realize the video are current stored in a SharePoint Media library, so ultimately this is asking to either a) increase the allowed file size in a SharePoint Library or b) store the files somewhere else. I also don't have many video files larger than 2GB. However, the videos I do have I would love to be able to upload to the video portal without having to compromise the quality of the video by trying to compress it down to a smaller file size.172 votes
SharePoint now allows you to upload files up to 10GB: http://fasttrack.microsoft.com/roadmap#L-15675
As Office 365 Video is built on SharePoint, the same file size limitation applies to Office 365 Video.
Video portal usage on mobile devices is an important scenario for us. Right now, the video portal doesn't render well on smaller screens; the video playback doesn't work on mobile devices either. Need it to work on mobile.98 votes
We now support mobile playback in the browser and have release a native iPhone app.

Would like inline playback and preview in Yammer. When posting to Yammer (either via the Y comments, or by adding the link), I don't see a preview or even a thumbnail of the video.81 votes
The ability to post a link from O365 Video (or Stream) to Yammer and have the video played back directly inline in Yammer web has been completed and is rolled out to customers.
For more information on this feature join the O365 Video forum on the Microsoft Tech Community.
Large videos can take a while to encode. The status screen that is currently presented is ok, but it's not great. You don't get any kind of progress indicator and have no idea how long the encoding is going to take. This is ok, but you can't expect people to sit on that page and wait for a long encoding to take place (leaving the page and checking back later is an even worse experience). In addition to improving the interactive progress experience, would it be possible to implement a notification process that will let you know via text or email that your encoding is complete? Vimeo does this and it is extremely handy. Thanks for listening.

Being able to upload your own closed captions42 votes
We rolled out this feature! Detailed instruction on how to use this feature can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Add-subtitles-or-captions-to-a-video-in-Office-365-Video-06eb120d-0f3f-4865-99c8-3d1bea577984?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

Add an "Uploaders" channel-level permission group. In the current version, users require the "Can Edit" permission to upload videos, but this also gives them the ability to delete the channel and modify access permissions.42 votes
We finished and deployed this feature.
Now, a channel has 3 permission levels per channel.
Owner – Full control of the channel, can change permissions, spotlight videos, change channel settings, delete the channel.
Contributors / Uploaders – Upload videos, edit/delete any videos in the channel.
Viewers – view videos only
I appreciate the recently added feature to embed videos in other sites. However, when embedding a video in O365 SharePoint, the embedded video is missing the control for fullscreen playback. Since most of our videos are software tutorials, the ability to go fullscreen is important.
Is it possible to resolve the issue with embedding in O365 SharePoint, so that the embedded player can make the video fullscreen?25 votes
We’ve made the embed player being able to go full screen on non-IE browsers. With IE browser, SharePoint pages have a special logic to use IE 10 at core instead of IE 11, which prevents the player to be able to go full screen.
Please disable the Yammer Integration. We have setup the social media function to the SharePoint Newsfeed. However we see still the yammer comment area.24 votes
We fixed this issue. The change is in the process of deploying to production. It should be there in a few weeks.
After the fix is in place, the Yammer panel will not show on the right side of a video if you have Yammer disabled for your tenant.
Currently there's no easy way for the user to tell how fast a video is being uploaded. There should be a progress bar and upload speed indicator.15 votes
We rolled out a new upload experience, with which, you can see overall upload progress, as well as per-video upload progress!
The automatic default group is set to company wide which will cause clutter in the yammer groups for everyone unless people are extremely aware to remove the group and define their own. If you can set or modify the default by channel or not include by channel that would greatly improve usability.12 votes
This feature was added to O365 Video some time back
The new setting for Yammer on a channel will give 3 options for a channel:
1. Default Yammer Group = All Company
2. Default Yammer Group = A specific Yammer Group
3. Turn off Yammer on videos in this channel
When posting a Office 365 Video to Yammer the following message is displayed "It looks like you're on a slow connection. We've disabled some images to speed things up."11 votes
This is fixed now. When you post a link from O365 Video to Yammer it shows the player in line so you can play the video directly in Yammer.
Uploading directly from iOS Photos or similar app on other smart phones. Today I can upload videos from my iPhone to YouTube and Vimeo. How about "O365 Video Portal" as another destination.8 votes
Thanks for the feedback. Now you can upload videos via our iPhone app.
Upload from iPhone via web browser will come in about 3 months.
Our mobile app uses the SharePoint imaging web service to upload photos to a picture library. We'd also like to upload videos, perhaps with a similar web service or an API.7 votes
We have a full REST API for O365 Video: https://msdn.microsoft.com/office/office365/APi/video-rest-operations#ChanneloperationsGetinformationaboutaparticularchannel.
I've built a few channels and if there is an apostrophe in the title of the channel, it won't allow videos to be uploaded.3 votes
Fixed this bug.
From a computer Web browser, the channel's spotlight 1 video thumbnail resolution is too low to look professional.
Channels > channel name > Settings > Gear (settings) > Video Channel Settings > Spotlight > Spotlight 1 > select a video.2 votes
We’ve made the fix. Let us know if you run into problems!
We accidently broke this a while back. We’ve finally figured out the root cause and are working on a fix.
Right now all the thumbnails are being returned at a very small resolution so in the spotlight they look bad. When we make the fix they should look good again.
There should be some comments on Video.2 votes
If your company is using Yammer, you will be able to comment on videos via Yammer commenting system that is integrated with Office 365 Video.
