Amazing Content, Problems With Playback

A lot of this research is truly novel an interesting but unfortunately the application has problems streaming the videos. The picture will freeze and all the user experiences is the audio. The video's time marker will also inexplicably jump ahead.

I found it slow, When I click on a video it takes time to load, it not about the internet. I play videos on Vevo app and they play nicer. Its just slow.

Great content

Really like the simplicity of of the app. It's all about the content. How about a Window Phone version?

Why doesn't Microsoft Research Video app play on the Surface? The website is fantastic... the app, not so much

I have a new Dell S2340T touch screen and a Dell XPS computer. Try to open this app and it just shuts down completely. Warning it might not work on your system.
