REDMOND/NEW YORK -- Bing, the new search engine released this week from Microsoft, has an agreement with Hulu to surface and play videos on its site.
Stefan Weitz, Director of Bing in Redmond via video Skype. He spoke about the integration with Hulu and plans to integrate Bing with other premium content producers and aggregrators.
Stefan also addressed the issue of the the "moving thumbnails" and the question of fair use. Microsoft has a technology which somehow samples segments from a clip and presents a short excerpt.
Not shown is the video is this important topic: I asked Stefan about how video producers can make sure to get their clips surfaced on Bing. He said that there is not a site map available but producers should contact Microsoft directly to get their content up and running.
