Microsoft upgrades Bing video search with pop-out previews and playback overlay

Microsoft knows that web-based video searches are cumbersome at times -- you frequently have to leave your results to see much more than a thumbnail. Accordingly, it just redesigned Bing's own video search to offer a smoother experience with fewer interruptions. Result pages now include pop-out previews that both play clips and show extra details, like view counts; more exacting users can filter searches with criteria such as the resolution or source site. There's also a new overlay that lets viewers stay on Bing while they start playback and look for related footage. If you'd like nothing more than to watch videos back-to-back-to-back, you can try the new search tool today.
