It would be good to allow external guest users the ability to upload and view videos to specific channels.

 

We  have consultants who capture CCTV videos of our assets.  Providing a mechanism whereby they could upload these videos directly to Stream would be great.  Something akin to external sharing in SharePoint.

I don't need that external users upload videos, but I want to share videos with them.

I teach kindergarten students and need the ability to give them easy access to videos I've prepared.  I usually do this by creating a QR code for them to scan, but for this to work I need the ability to the create a link that is "anyone with link can view".  Please allow external guests to view video.

Letting guest users VIEW video is rather important, and the delay for this is getting rather silly now for something that is supposed to work as a collaboration tool in a corporate setting.

 

Not sure about upload, but hey, if if gets implemented then good :)

Absolutely must have external access enabled quickly! This will actually break many of my mixes... :(

Still waiting for this critical feature ...

 

We have SharePoint pages that include embeded videos. Our parent company just get broken pages with missing blocks.

Can't believe this isn't possible!

Any update on guest users being able to view stream video?

Hey team,

We want to invite guest users to collaborate with us in o365.  So far guest access in Teams (o365 groups) is about as basic as it can be, and we still cant access other 365 services like stream videos to share video with guests as part of the o365 group, or team.  Ideally if a guest user is added to a team, then any content in the o365 environment you choose to share with them should be accessible eg planner, stream etc.  If I put a video from stream into the Teams environment, or add the guest to the group in stream they should be able to access these services.  Collaboration is increasingly across business boundaries, and having guest access to at least view video is so important.  What's the time frame for this, if at all?

I want to be able to share some videos with external customers but I should be able to control who gets to see the video. I would love to see this feature.

without this feature, we are unable to use stream in our company.  We will have to use YouTube .

We are a consulting company that leverages an Office 365 Group for each customer/project and we invite the customers to join the Office 365 Group as Guests (External Users).

 

We also record every Skype for Business Meeting we have.

 

Given that each Office 365 Group is represented with a Group in Stream, the ideal place to store the recordings would be in the Group in Stream with Channels for the various types of meetings we have (SCRUM, Discovery Sessions, Working Sessions, Training, etc.). We would then have a Page in the Team Site for each channel with the Stream web part on it configured to show the corresponding channel.

 

Since Stream doesn't support External Users, we are forced to store these recordings in a classic "Asset Library" with the Video Content Type; it works (in Classic mode), but it is not ideal.

Granting someone external a short term pass to our stream (to upload) would be great to support cross-institution collaboration.

I don't see this anywhere on the product roadmap.  Can the product team give an estimate on how many years before this will be considered?  Thank you!
