Bing Video Search

After MSN Search and Live Search, Bing (first known under the code name "Kumo") has been Microsoft's search solution since 2009. Bing is often referred to as the leading Google competitor and also supplies the Yahoo search. According to ComScore, Bing and Yahoo together had a market share of 32.6% of US Internet searches in the US behind Google (64.5% of US search market share) in 2015. Bing calls himself a "decision engine". Early on, Bing relied on some of today's common search functionalities, such as the display of search suggestions when entering a search term, a list of related searches or a listing of concrete search results directly on the results page.

Bing offers a video search from the beginning. A special crawler searches the web for video content in Windows Media, MPEG, Flash, Real, QuickTime, etc. format.
