Microsoft has announced it will begin moving video content hosted on Office 365 Video to Microsoft Stream on March 1, 2020.
If you currently host video content on Office 365 Video, you do not need to take any action. Your content will be migrated automatically. Any existing Office 365 Video embed codes and links to videos will continue to work, redirecting to the same content in Stream.
Stream delivers a variety of new features, including:
- Permissions at the video level
- Rich video description, including links directly to times within a video
- Deep search of what is spoken in the video
- Stream mobile app on iOS and Android with offline playback
Please note that video view statistics will not be immediately available after the transition to Stream, but Microsoft is working to add that functionality. More information about Stream is available on Microsoft’s website.
Please contact the 24/7 IT Help Desk at 412 624-HELP (4357) if you have any questions about this announcement.
