Hi,

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.

 

 

Regards,

Syed

Are you still having that problem?

Very strange..have you verified lasted updates to both IE and Windows  are applied on the PCs with problems?

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?
