You can now post a link to a video from Stream on Yammer and it will play inline directly in Yammer web. With this ability you can use Yammer to broadcast out your internal messages using videos in Stream and users don’t have to leave Yammer web to watch the videos.
Try it out now…
Grab the player page URL from Stream and past it into a Yammer post. Or post to Yammer from inside of Stream (Player Page > Share button > Yammer share button).
As always, the permissions on the video in Stream will be respected in Yammer. If someone posts to a Yammer group that doesn’t have permissions to the video they’ll get a friendly message saying they don’t have access to watch the video.
Check out the Office Blog to see all the other great announcements from Yammer including support for playing Microsoft Stream videos in Yammer.
In the coming weeks we’ll be rolling out a Microsoft Stream web part for SharePoint Online. The Microsoft Stream web part will allow you to embed a single video or an entire channel into your SharePoint pages. With this web part you can leverage the great streaming capabilities of Microsoft Stream while putting your videos in context in group sites, communication sites, or news articles.
