I uploaded .mp4's created with Camtasia Studio.  They seem to upload perfectly, as I see the thumbnails and the indext audio.  When I try to play them I get the spinny arrow then I see this error page.

Is this an issue with our firewall or what?

OK, works fine from home....so I guess it our corporate firewall (or similar). What do I need to tell the folks running this stuff. Open port (which one)

Great new service.

 

I wonder if it can support 360 videos. I've just tried uploading an equirectangular video, but it doesn't seems to recognise it. Or does it requires a specific metadata to be injected?

 

Anyone?

Agreed, we need this functionality also. Haven't been able to find one Microsoft product which accepts 360 video.

Yes, this should be a feature.  It should support different formats of content.  Such as having multiple content types, 360, audio podcasts, etc.

We are seeing some odd behaviour in IE11.  It works great in Chrome but in IE, the videos never load - they just keep buffering.  Any ideas?
