I just hope we can organize videos better in Stream than in Video. Really liked O365Video but was very limited.

To better connect with all of you about Microsoft Stream we've added a Microsoft Stream community here on the Microsoft Tech Community.

Does anyone know if there is a way to create a playlist of videos within a specific channel? Or failing that, has anyone created a custom video carousel that can be embedded within SharePoint that features a selection of videos from a channel?

We don't support playlists in O365 Video or Stream. Playlists support is on the list of ideas for the future in Stream.

Thanks for providing the feedback, and we will investigate this. We may need access to sample content to find the root cause - we'll get back with more details

Is it possible to enable Office 365 Video for certain users and groups? If so, how do we enable without displaying the tile in the App Launcher? We want to provide access to Office 365 Video in a pilot program for a limited audience. Thanks much.

Sorry, but this is not possible...Office 365 Video can be configured On/Off for the entire organization.


Please let us know about the recent limitations about the O365 Videos. For exmaple the file size limitations, number of channel limitations etc. Is it similar to sharepoint online as it is built on top it.

I admit to not paying close attention recently, but have there been any further announcements (or even hints) as to when Office 365 Video and Microsoft Stream will converge?

Correct, we haven't made any announcments.


We are working out the engineering plans on how exactly we'll do the convergence and what timelines we'll shoot for.
