Based on your great feedback, we have added the capability to download the original video file from any videos you have uploaded!

 

If you are the owner of a video, you will see the new “Download Original Video” option in the action menu for your video:

Furthermore, you can download the video from the Edit Video page.

Added bonus: this can help you find the original video to send over to our Support team in order to get help diagnosing any issues you may be experiencing with a given video!

As an admin how do I download the original video that another user has uploaded? Where can I see a full list of all content uploaded by users?

I would like to download video's that I have not uploaded

Occasional Contributor

It would be great for the video owner to be able to give permission to others for a video to be downloaded.

Can I select multiple videos to download at once?

Does anyone know if Screencast O Matic is compatible with microsoft stream? I can't seem to import screencast o matic videos into microsoft stream. Any suggestions? Thanks!

@ChrisKnowlton  Really - this post was 12-11-2018 05:30 AM and still no answer to any of these questions.
What is the point of a community if no one answers?

Is there any way to bulk download videos from Stream?  Person is the owner.

It seems downloading of Stream videos for non-owners has a low priority for Microsoft. There is a user voice for this but Microsoft hasn't reacted to it for a long time: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-stream-ideas/allow-download-of-videos-for-non-owner...

 

Maybe if more people voted for it, it would get the attention it deserves ;)

There are also threads on two other forums requesting this...

 

https://stream.uservoice.com/forums/133762-general/suggestions/38064382-provide-option-to-allow-anyo...

 

https://office365.uservoice.com/forums/264636-general/suggestions/33052234-microsoft-stream-member-d...

 

This feature is really needed by your customers Microsoft - unfortunately the requests are landing in different places, and there are no responses to any of these threads by Microsoft representatives. This feature is not appearing on the Stream roadmap.

The workaround is considerable (adding files into a Sharepoint folder and sharing links, making sure permissions are just right...)
