Bing video vs. Bing video browse

In simple words, there are two different ways that you can use to search for videos in Bing. The browse option helps you to find a video that is selected by the Bing team.

How to access the browse option form the homepage?

If you visit the homepage of Bing video you will not get the browser option that is used for browsing a number of preselected categories of videos. To get access to the browser section you have to type in your web browser. Another option is directly go the Bing search and then click on the videos tab and the type browse if the browse option does not appear automatically.

Deep Search

After selecting a category you can further narrow it down by selecting the sub-categories. For example you want to see how-to type videos. Once you select the how-to category, next you can select the following subcategories: beauty, health, food, technology, relationship and travel.

Searching other video sites with Bing

Bing allows not only to search their own video network, but you can also search for videos in MTV, YouTube, Dailymotion and some other popular video sharing sites. The best thing is that Bing allows searching for a video with a specific topic spread across the other video sharing sites or a particular video site, from a single place. To search a particular site, you have to select the name of the site from the source tab, located at the left side of the website. For details check the screenshot given below:

      Oh, all these options we have. I just never know what is the best. Then, when I change from one to the other, some major things go wrong.

      Thanks for these instructions. Now I will give Bing Video Search another try :)
