#Microsoft365 #Office365 #SharePoint #Stream In the past it was a challenge to upload videos to your SharePoint libraries, and most companies didn’t allow this. Now with Microsoft Stream you have an Enterprise Video Service, specifically designed for this. Lets see how we can surface these videos inside of SharePoint.

For previous posts in my #Microsoft365Challenge go to the index page.

Microsoft Stream

Microsoft Stream is a secure video service so you can manage who views your video content and determine how widely to share within your organization. Secure application access is enabled by Azure Active Directory, a recognized leader in identity management systems, to protect sensitive corporate content.+

Microsoft Stream also helps you organize content into Channels and Groups so it’s easier to find. Microsoft Stream works well with other Office 365 apps like Teams, SharePoint, OneNote, and Yammer, giving even more ways to discover more relevant content. Read more…

Navigate to https://office.com and click on Stream. If you don’t see it under your usual apps, go to the app launcher and expand all apps:

I suggest creating channels in Stream for the different types of videos you would like to share:

Upload content to these channels by dragging videos onto the page. Remember to set the permissions for your videos / channels. Once you’ve created a channel and added videos, copy the URL to the Channel:

Stream Web Part in SharePoint:

In SharePoint you can add this web part to the page by editing the page, and adding the Stream Web Part:

I suggest adding a Channel, not a single video (based on requirements of course). This way it will continue showing any videos that you’ve added to that Channel in Stream. You do not have to edit the SharePoint page / web part again to show the latest additions:

Here you’ll see the Stream Channel as a web part on the page:

This is a great idea to surface tips and tricks for training or even awareness videos in your company.


Purpose of this blog challenge:  I will write 365 blogs in 365 days around Microsoft 365. I did a similar challenge with Office 365, blogs can be found here. I won’t just be talking about the new Microsoft 365 subscription model. I will be sharing any news, tips and tricks around Office / Office 365 / Windows / Mobility and Security. And let’s not forget all the great new Apps & services available.  A lot of what I’ll share on Office and SharePoint will also be applicable to none “Office 365” versions.
