Not, geographically, mind you - I'm looking for logical hierarchy, file path equivalent. 

 

The other O365 apps (for the most part) store their content -both uploaded and created - in SharePoint.  One can navigate the root site file structure and find the 'raw' data, and even download it for backup purposes or to use elsewhere.

 

My suspicion from what little I've found on the topic, is that this is not the case for Stream... 

  • Storage quotas are separate from SPO quotas
  • Stream data isn't searchable via SharePoint ("yet")
  • There's no integration for including/importing video files that are saved in SharePoint

 

Please, somebody, prove me wrong!

Did you find any additional information on this topic yet?

The data is stored in its own storage based on Azure, specifically blob and also uses SQL and Media Services - see articles here

There is no current way to access this directly, only via the Stream portal.

Stream quotas are separate from SPO quotas as also confirmed in these articles

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Stream-Forum/Stream-Storage/td-p/79182

The search has a uservoice open for this

There is a uservoice open for importing videos to Stream from SharePoint

Hope that answers your questions! And confirms your suspicions are correct!
