I recently joined a team at my work which use Teams for meetings which we record. I noticed that the videos produces have me as owner, but in fact it should be my team who is owner. Because if I leave the team or the company, the videos may be deleted and then the team has no track of those meetings.
I tried to create a channel under my team and added the video to that channel. But if I delete the video from my profile, it is also removed from the channel.
So what is best practice here?

Microsoft does have a solution to this, see here
Once the user name of a deleted user is removed from Microsoft Stream, any videos/channels/comments created by that user are moved to a “general bucket” and cannot be reassigned. This is a permanent operation and cannot be undone.
So whilst you can have shared ownership of a video to control who has access and permissions on the content you manage the content until you are deleted from the organisation where the content goes into a general bucket.
Another way to work around this is to potentially create a Team account and record the meetings on the Team account so no one has access to delete the content.
Hope that answers your question

@Christopher Hoard This seems unnecessarily cumbersome; plus, that ghost account occupies a license. If it only becomes an issue when a user is deleted, I suggest that this becomes an off-boarding (account removal) process... perhaps a Stream/Global administrator looks for videos which is owned by that person, and change the ownership accordingly. This can also be done by the administrators after an account is deleted.
In a (single) test today:
My guess is that if there were a user 3, user 3 would have no ownership rights to the video.
Any owner of the video could then make the Team as an owner of the video. This process makes more sense to me.
