Stream (on SharePoint) is an intelligent video experience that empowers you to record, upload, discover, share, and manage video just as you would any other file. Video is like any other document. It seamlessly integrates with apps across Microsoft 365, so you get the same experience no matter where you add or engage with video content.
With Stream (on SharePoint), users can:
Upload video or audio files to SharePoint, Teams, or OneDrive just like any other file.
Find and get back to recent videos, ones shared with you from the Stream start page in Office.
Generate a transcript and closed captions for the language spoken in a video in SharePoint, Teams, or OneDrive.
Manually add chapters, letting a viewer jump right to the part of the audio/video file they want.
Collaborate with comments, just like with any other Microsoft 365 document.
Add custom thumbnails, titles, and descriptions.
Share videos with others, including external partners or guests, just like you share any other file.
Feature videos in pages, sites, portals, and Microsoft Teams.
Get analytics to know how your viewers are watching.
Stream start page
The Stream start page in Office lets you get back to videos no matter where they uploaded them across Microsoft 365. It helps you find videos and Teams meeting recordings and quickly pick up where you left off or discover new content that was shared or is useful to you.
Stream web app
The Stream web app improves the way you consume video content. It works seamlessly with the Stream start page in Office.
Watch a video while reading the transcript, use chapters to navigate to sections you care about most, and leave a comment for others. The playback controls work just as you would expect, with the addition of noise suppression, captions, and full screen support.
It's also your video management tool where you can add a title and description to your audio/video file, set a custom thumbnail, add the chapters you want, generate a transcript, share videos, and even share your video at a specific time code.
Note: You'll get to the Stream web app page for audio and video files in Microsoft 365 from share links, search results, Office start pages, and web parts. You'll see the preview player when opening audio and video files directly from the OneDrive and SharePoint library lists. If you are in the preview player you can click the Open > Open in Stream button to get to the Stream web app.
