I searched a lot of threads an they were either ~2 years old or talked about using Stream/O365 Video.

 

On our new Modern site, I uploaded three MP4 videos to a both a SharePoint Asset Library and Video library (activated video and rich media feature).  I am trying to find the embed code so I can embed the video on our home page, but I don't seem to be able to find it.  Is there a way to upload MP4 videos to Modern SharePoint site and then embed them into web page?  I can only get link and when I add the link, it doesn't look nice vs. embedded videos

 

Also, does anybody know if SharePoint online modern sites' 'support MP4 videos?  I imagine hundreds of users may watch this video at a time.

 

We don't want to use Stream as it prompts the users to log in

 

thoughts?

Upload your videos to the Stream service that supports your file format. You can use the Stream web part in a modern page and embed either the video or the whole channel you associated the video with.

Thanks @Alan Marshall , after testing a few things, we are now using Stream, just had to tweak a few settings in Office 365

 

For anybody else who comes across this thread, save time and use Streams, seems like after doing homework this is the official / supported / best practice way of storing/ embedding videos in SharePoint Modern sites online is using Stream or Office 365 video

We are using stream for videos and have few modern SharePoint sites which have the stream app embedded. However the search feature on the modern SharePoint site doesn't return any search results from Stream Videos. Is there any setting that I could change ? Please advise



 

Hi,

   I saw your post and thought, OK I'll try streams. It might be OK in someplaces, but the video just did not play. I used an YouTube embed instead, via the embed web part since the YouTube webpart refused to work.

 

I'm running this from, and my users are in, Rwanda, so it's possible that the video is not cached anywhere near Rwanda and the performance might be worse than most people's experience.

 

But thanks for your suggestion. It did make me look at streams.

Geoff
