Bing Videos (previously Live Search Video) is a video search service and part of Microsoft's Bing search engine. The service enables users to search and view videos across various websites. Bing Videos was officially released on September 26, 2007 as Live Search Video, and rebranded as Bing Videos on June 3, 2009. The feature has been removed from the "Bing at a glance" feature list as of April 6, 2010.[1]
