Earlier this year at the MIX08 Conference, Microsoft announced an upcoming video portal designed to make finding Microsoft videos even easier. Earlier this month, that portal launched, so if you haven’t had a chance to check it out yet, you can do so here: preview.microsoft.com/video.
The site features official Microsoft videos, including those you’ve seen here on Channel 10, as well as sister sites 8 and 9, but that’s only a small sampling of the content. The site also features product videos for Windows, Office, server products, mobile products, web products, hardware, tools, Xbox, and more as well as how-tos, showcases, ads, security videos, events, research projects, and other solutions. You can browse any of these particular areas from this page or you can browse by intended audience – IT Pros, Developers, Home Users, etc.
After finding a video to watch, only one click and you can email it, Digg it, or grab embed code so you can post the video on your own web site or blog as you wish. However, LiveSide points out one of the most useful features for the new video portal – RSS feeds for searches. They give the example of a feed for Windows Live.
