Launched today, Microsoft Videos is a brand-new video portal that gives you an easy-to-use location for viewing all of the most recent Microsoft-produced videos. The portal has a wide variety of videos, keynote speeches, how-to instructions, and demo videos.

 

Featured videos will change daily and you can watch them using a new custom Silverlight video player. Try out  new features, like how to create a party playlist in Windows Vista by watching the video at the same time you're setting up your playlist, or view the newest Microsoft Office 2007 video featuring Amy Sedaris.

 

Some of the coolest aspects of this portal are the community features. After viewing videos, you can not only rate and comment on what you've seen, but also share videos with friends via e-mail or the embed link. (You can post the video and player for sharing by embedding the linkand it's easy. Just copy and paste the embed URL onto your personal blog.)
