Bing Video Search Adds Streamlined Navigation & Hi-Res Video Previews

Ads by Google

The Bing video search experience gets better this week, with a redesigned interface that brings in high-resolution video previews, more sources, and filters. The changes hopefully will lead to not only a better video searching experience, but also a better watching experience. One of the underlying changes enables you to watch the videos on a lightbox overlay without leaving your collated search.

Bing says that the video search has been designed from the ground up. Once you hit search, videos results come from sites like YouTube, Hulu, Vimeo, Dailymotion, Vevo, MTV, CBS, MSN and more. You don’t have to go to the source sites to catch the previews anymore because you can mouse-over and the video pops out to start playing there and then in the thumbnail. The information on the video like view counts and resolution, is displayed underneath. The little video preview also has a volume button. These changes help you save time when searching for the right video.

Filters like Length, Date, Resolution, and Source also go towards improving the video search features. 720p and 1080p resolutions are covered. Last but not the least, the video you want to watch can be opened up in a lightbox. The overlay also makes it easy to move to the next video with the easy-to-click carousel at the bottom of the light box. Related searches are reflected on the right.

Bing’s video search does seem more user-friendly than Google and even competes just considering the number of features offered out-of-the-box on the page. But what do you think? Has Bing got it just right this time around?
