Unclear what this means for orgs like ours using O365 Video.

  • Will there be two App Launcher Tiles for Video and Stream?  How will that work in practice? Will there essentially be two video portals?

I just hope we can organize videos better in Stream than in Video. Really liked O365Video but was very limited.
Will there be new features with GA, or can we assume that the "current version is feature complete" (not talking about feature updates).

What it means for O365 Video customers is that you'll have Stream start showing up in the App Luancher (on by default) when we flip the switches in the coming months to f

When I am trying to give a Off 365 group permissions to upload a video I get an error that this is not yet possible to use a Office group. A distribution group is working, but not a Off 365 group. When will this be possible?

Thanks for the detailed explanation @Marc Mroz

We were waiting for a big set of re-work to be done on SPO search crawl/index to allow it to correctly know and handle O365 Groups. Previous to this work, if we allowed a

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?

 

Thanks

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.

There have been a couple of announcements with new functionality with Steam, but it will take some more time I think... Keep watching the Stream blog for more info.

None yet, keep checking the Office 365 Roadmap site.

Apologies if this has been covered before but does anyone know if Videos on either Office 365 Video or Microsoft Stream can be shared out to the public with a link as yet?

Kind regards

You can expect sharing of videos to external users (Authenticated users) soon but not as anonymous link shared to view by anyone.

We have started adding captions/subtitles to some of our videos. We have done this for a few languages using Subtitle Edit http://www.nikse.dk/SubtitleEdit as it understands the type of captions Microsoft Video understands.

I'm not 100% sure if it will or won't. It comes down to if the SPO search index drops the video (and it's view counts/stats) while it was deleted. Its possible if it was ... Read More
I'd like to think so, as one can replace an existing video with a new one and as long as the filenames are the same you will keep the analytics.

Few questions about Steam.

  1. Will rich text formatting of video description be available in Steam?  I’ve already voted this feature request in user voice for O365 video.
  2. Currently our employees must be logged in to our network to access O365 video portal. Wil

Rich text formatting in Stream

There isn't fully RTF support in Stream but it's a little better than O365 Video.

For 2., that should be the case

Will you explain the settings for "People in Video"? Does it matter if they are set to "People or Group" versus "Lookup"? Also, what is the default and is there any condition that would cause the default to change automatically?

 

Thanks!

Do you mean the "People related to this video" setting you have per video? If so, you can only add there individual users and not Groups

We have an O365 Video with a Captions track for French. Is there a way to force that subtitles track to be on by default, or to have it be visible when someone sends a link to the video?
