Hi,

 

Is there a facility in Stream to share a video and make it available to anonymous users so that it can be embedded in different websites.

 

Thanks

39 Replies

No, not currently.  External sharing is something that's going to be worked on but not something we will see for a while, from what I gather.  Worth keeping an eye out on roadmap for updates. 

 

Also, @null null see this response for a few more insights:

 

Few Questions about Microsoft Stream.png

 

 

Cian is right, it's not available today. 

 

We did however move it up a bit in our priority list. We are doing some internal planning reviews of public anonymous access today. Hoping that development starts on this in next couple of months if everything goes well. 

 

Idea is the same as we mentioned last time. You could mark a video as public anonymous and grab an embed code to put on public site. Users don't need to log in to see the video. 

 

There will likely be a public streaming quota that this consumes, so you'd get some amount of public streaming included in your licensing but if you need more each moth you'd have to buy add-on.

I would like to just share my frustration that this is not available yet. 

We would all love to have this feature ready to be used. We've started technical design on this feature. I'm hoping we are able to start coding against this in Q3. Sorry!

I was just wondering why Office Mix required us to upload our videos to Stream and then made them inaccessible to the people in which they were created for?  Am I missing something in sharing these videos or is there no way to share them with my students?

Solution

without this functionality, we can't use this product. Cancelling my subscription now... please let us know when you release it. 

thanks

 

Could you please give us an update on the timeline for this added functionality? We moved our videos to Stream and need to share them via our external website (as well as internally), LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.

 

Your response would be greatly appreciated as my ELT and Marketing SVP are waiting for an answer from me.

 

Cheers,

Laurie

The public external anonymous videos in Stream project got delayed as we we've been heads down working on live events and O365 Video to Stream migration over the last many months. Sorry about any of my optimistic (incorrect) timelines above.

 

We've recently significantly increased the size of our team, so I'm hoping we'll be able to start making quicker progress on more projects in parallel. 

 

Public anonymous is still high on our backlog but we've also uncovered some deeper architectural changes that might be necessary before we can enable a video to be watched from Stream by anyone in the world without a login. I'd say over the course of the next couple of months we'll have a better picture on what the timeline will be for this feature. Sorry I can't give any specific timelines other than an update on where we are at with it.

How does your update relate to this announcement: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/business-applications-release-notes/october18/dynamics365-marketing... ?

I don't think the announcement will make a lot of sense if you can't share Stream video's anonymously.

You are correct, they are tied together. We'd need to build out the public anonymous video ability in Stream for that feature to be possible in Dynamics. Both are delayed at this point since the Stream side of the equation is delayed.

Glad to see I'm not the only one finding Microsoft's subscriptions offerings to be a giant, compartmentalised mess. Almost every time I google an issue or functionality I'm seeing I run across thread just like this - lots of users asking for what most of us would consider to be bare-minimum, as advertised functionality, and then a rep from Microsoft acknowledging that it doesn't exist, can't be done, or isn't in their function set.

 

I found this thread particularly funny as the rep claims they are working on other functionality for live streaming (something a minority of users would probably ask for) over secured video hosting with anonymous viewing (something almost every organisation would want to use, which should be standard functionality, ad very much what is highlighted and promised in their marketing material).

 

All in all I do sympathise, it must be difficult trying to catch up to the bare basics Google figured out with their suite 5 years ago.

 

 

Where this is extremely frustrating is that Stream is where Teams records it's meetings too.  Teams allows you to have people outside the organization join a meeting.  But there is no way for them to view the recording.  It feels like the teams at Mircosoft are out of sync. 

I'm convinced there is a room at MS HQ where developers lean back in big, comfortable chairs and laugh because people are actually trying to use their software. (This room is next to the team that searches for other software to steal copy, i.e., Netscape Navigator, WordPerfect, Quattro Pro, Presentations, etc; which is next to the room where teams buy software to ruin it, e.g., Skype, Nokia.)

 

Why would they release an app call Stream, when you can't stream anything to a public audience? Their software is all the same: full of bugs and not intuitive .

This looks to affect Microsoft Teams as the default video format from what I can tell is Stream.  When you record a Teams meeting I don't see a way to share that recording with participants since it saves the video in stream.  This is a problem and should be fixed as this functionality was available in Skype For Business.

Also you should at least allow us the ability to download the video in a format that we can share with others through a different medium.  This should be a basic functionality. 

@Aseem Nayar - If jump to the Teams meeting recording in Stream you'll see that if you are the owner of the video you can download the MP4 recording itself and put it on some other location. Stream supports download of the original uploaded video for owners only. 

Thanks I see that now.  I didn't know you had to go to My content first then download from there.

It would be nice to have a download link right on the video if you are the owner.  

Thanks for pointing it out though!

@Marc Mroz Any progress or updates yet on making videos on Microsoft Stream available to anyone on the internet?  This is much needed and will make MS Stream far more usable to companies.

Business case: selling Teams and did an intro on the solution with prospect today. Recorded it b/c one of their VP's had to miss the meeting and they wanted him to be able to see it. No Problem I said... now have to fall on my sword as I have no way to let him see the video. Too large to download and send, Too proprietary to download and then upload to a public forum like YouTube. Disappointing. 

+1 for the frustration. not having a way to publicly share a video, is a dealbreaker for using this good recording feature with MS Teams

Hi Gary - sorry to hear that you're having issues with sharing the meeting recording. As a workaround for sending the large file, have you tried hosting the downloadable MP4 on SharePoint and sending a link? I know it's not ideal, but hopefully that will work while you're waiting for the anonymous sharing feature. 

Agreed and thank you for the workaround, we have done similar...

We are a hosted architecture Direct Routing solutions provider/carrier so we do daily sales, onboarding, and training calls relating to Teams voice solutions. That being said its reflects poorly on the app when we cannot record those sessions natively in Teams and share with prospects, customers, etc outside our org. Thank You for your comments. Respectfully, Gary - teams@nuwave.com

I have people resorting to YouTube for external video sharing now. I'd love to have this soon so I can get their business process changed/adapted before it gets too ingrained.

Also very frustrated that I can't share videos outside my company.

As lead on video communications at my company, the inability to share anonymously or publicly renders this tool useless for us.  We have thousands of users in the field watching videos on their phone.  Imagine if you could only use Skype to call people on your network.... not off.

The download of an mp4 is the only workaround that I know of and use at the moment. I think it should be a no-brainer that participants of a recorded Teams Meeting get to view/listen to what they said. If not focussing on anonymous access, you should at least make this a priority.

@null null Looks like this request made its' way onto the official development plan (product roadmap) for Microsoft Stream: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Stream

 

Release: Q4 CY2019

Microsoft Stream: Public anonymous external video sharing

Allow individual videos in Microsoft Stream to be marked for external public access allowing the video to be embeded in a public website. Anyone in the world can view these external videos without a login. Stream admins will be able to control if this feature is enabled and who within the organization can make videos publicly available.

It's still a bit of a wait, but I'm happy it's happening. Also: should have spotted it myself in the roadmap! :smirking_face:

@Jeroen Huylebroeck Oh man, but not until Q4.  I guess the mp4 download workaround is how we'll work in the meantime.  

until this is possible We still have to use youtube, would be really nice

@LilleLars Why YouTube? Why not just download the video and share via OneDrive or SharePoint?

@Marc Mroz 

What service policies will be added on anonymous to access Stream, which would be such as limits of guest access, maximum number of connections in concurrent streams,...etc.

Thank you

@Jason Lindsell this is good but how will this impact sharing to everyone in the Tenet and just NOT being displayed/discoverable .. "unlisted" in stream home content search ... 

Roadmap now says September 2019, we are getting closer. :)

@Marc Mroz 

Hello Marc, where is development of this at the time, already Q4/2019

 

Thank you

agreed @Raymond Boone  our culture is hardening around youtube is there a recommended best practice for now MSFT Marc ? Its becoming more and more difficult to change what is being adopted more and more by my users...

I Agree with everyone above that this is becoming an even bigger issue everyday as more and more folks are using Teams for meetings/recording and then cant share that content (easily or natively) with those outside their org.

I do Teams Direct Routing Partner Hosted Architecture Presentations DAILY to large master agent groups, re-sellers, and direct customers/prospects. As these are large groups and often everyone cannot make the meeting they almost always ask me to record so the missing invitees can watch later. They see the recording in the meeting thread but cant access it so often ask me why & can I email it to them (or worse yet can I upload to Dropbox). This should be a native Teams experience ASAP.

 

For workarounds, obviously you cant download then email as they file is usually too large. Using non MSFT dropbox when you are evangelizing Microsoft reflects poorly on Teams, Microsoft, and Me. YouTube is not an option for private or NDA'd meetings. I use OneDrive as my workaround but am really looking forward to External users having access to this content in Stream.

This thread is so frustrating.  It has 23.3k views and multiple comments about the shared frustration with the limitations of this product and so far the response from MS is "we're working on it" and yet the date in the roadmap changes and then doesn't get done.  I forwarded this thread to our IT department to show that the method of operation appears to be 1. push out buggy software 2. bugs persist for years and allocate no resources to support for existing products 3. end of life that product and push out new product with new bugs 4. wash rinse repeat@null null
