  1. Embed a video to other pages

    It is important that we can easily embed a video from the video portal to other pages, e.g., a SharePoint page.

    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.

    See more info on this feature here:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/59e19984-c34e-4be8-889b-f6fa93910581

    Or grab the embed code via REST API:

  2. Download video

    Possibility to download a video in different qualities for offline use, something like channel9.msdn.com

    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.

  3. Allow screenshots from the video to be set as the thumbnail image.

    In SharePoint it is easy to setup a Thumbnail image from the video itself but this isn't shown on the screen right now.

  4. Allow kiosk licensed users to view videos

    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.

  5. Support file size for videos larger than 2GB

    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.

  6. Optimize the experience on mobile devices

    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.

  7. Inline playback and preview of O365 video in Yammer

    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.

    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.

  8. Encoding (Upload) Complete Notification

    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…

  10. Add an "Uploaders" channel-level permission group

    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.

    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

  11. Resolve SharePoint embed issue - video is not able to go fullscreen

    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?

  12. Disable Yammer integration

    Please disable the Yammer Integration. We have setup the social media function to the SharePoint Newsfeed. However we see still the yammer comment area.

  13. Improve upload experience

    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.

  14. Yammer group default per channel

    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.

  16. upload

    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.

  17. Upload videos using a web service

    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.

  18. Video Channels with an apostrophe in them setup but don't allow upload

    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.

  19. Improve quality for channel spotlight video thumbnail

    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.

    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.

  20. Comments

    There should be some comments on Video.
