You could create a feature for a file approval system, when I upload a video, it needs an authorization or signage to be made available.

I see that Stream Plan 1 allows you to upload videos.

If we have users that just need to VIEW videos (but they won't be doing any uploading), does that mean no Plan 1 license is needed for them (or any license for that matter)?

You can download the vtt file and edit it with a text editor (Notepad, etc) and then reupload it to the Stream site.
