Microsoft has announced on the Bing Search Blog an update to their video search features. Bing Video added larger video thumbnails when you hover over video results in the search results. They also added infinite scroll when you view videos on Bing Video. Additional search refinements for related content and a large video viewer and filmstrip were also added.
Here is a screen shot of the preview thumbnails in the Bing search results:
Bing’s infinite scroll is popular on their image search, which lets users scroll through the search results instead of clicking on “next” for more results. That feature is now on their video results giving users a “quick and easy way to view virtually unlimited videos by simply scrolling down the page,” said Bing.
