Microsoft Stream is an Enterprise Video service where people in your organization can upload, view, and share videos securely. You can share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, or other videos that aid your team’s collaboration. Microsoft Stream also makes it easy to share comments on a video, tag timecodes in comments and descriptions to refer to specific points in a video and discuss with colleagues.
Locate videos you own
- In the Stream navigation bar, go to My content > Videos.
- After navigating to your Videos page, you can search, filter and sort within the scope of your videos. As with searching all videos on Stream, entering a keyword into search will match not only words in the video’s title and description, but the transcript as well.
Find other videos
- Type a keyword into the search box in the Stream navigation bar or click the magnifying glass for more options.
- If you would like to find videos from a specific user, group, or channel – start by clicking the magnifying glass to see more search options. Then, select the tab for the type of search you would like to make.
Share a video by copying URL
- In Stream, navigate to the video you would like to share.
- Click the Share icon below the video player.
- On the Share tab of the pop-up, click Copy by direct link to video.
For a quicker way to grab the link, you can also also just copy the link directly from the address bar of the video page.
- You can now post or message this link elsewhere to share the video.
Teams meeting recordings
Info to be aware of:
- Permissions – When a meeting is recorded in Teams, permissions will be set to allow whoever was invited to the meeting to view the video.
- However, if a team channel is added to a meeting, the Stream recording will be set to only allow members of that channel to view to video (regardless of who else was invited). This can be changed afterwards in video permissions by the owner.
- Recording owner – The user that initiated the recording will be set as the owner of the video. If the meeting is for a class, make sure the instructor is the one to initiate the recording.
- Locating channel meeting recordings – Recordings made in a meeting that includes a team channel can be found by viewing the team’s corresponding group page (if you have permission to view the group).
For instructions on recording a Teams meeting, see Record a meeting in the main Teams article.
Add a user or group in video permissions
- In Stream, navigate to the video on which you would like to edit permissions.
- Click the More actions icon below the video and select Update video details.
- You should now be on the edit video details page. Depending on whether your browser window is full-screened or not, you may already see the full permissions section. If you do not, click Permissions as shown below.
- Now, you can use the Share with box to add users or groups.
- If you would like to add a specific user:
