Unable to Publish

New Contributor

I have uploaded a video my orgs. Stream site so it now sits in the My Video section and I can watch it.  However, when I click the Publish Now button or link, the cursor briefly changes to a no entry sign and nothing happens!  There is no feedback like error messages. 

Do i need to be assigned a specific role or function to be able to publish videos to my organisation?  It looks like I am the first person in my org. to use the Stream service.

Hi @Man1x, could you please help us with some more information

  • Try publishing again, if it fails
  • Click on the "?" in the top left part of navigation header, click "About Microsoft Stream". 
  • On the screen that shows up, please note your session ID and share with us so that we can look up logs to see what's happening.

Hi, still not publishing, so here is my Session ID:


Hey @Man1x, we are in fact seeing your requests on the back-end, but there are some strange things we are seeing.  


For starters, the HTTP requests that are expected to be PATCH are coming in as "METHOD_OTHER"


Are you by chance running behind some sort of proxy/firewall that could be adding headers to your requests?  We are also seeing a buch of "X-SSL" related headers that we are not used to seeing from users.

Hi @Man1x,


After further investigation we do believe your organization network has a firewall or proxy server that is intercepting and manupulating traffic in a way that it breaks Microsoft Stream functionality. More specifically, HTTP PATCH requests (and possibly DELETE) are being modified by the proxy in a way that make them invalid when received by our service. It looks like this may happen with firewall devices/servers which are not up-to-date with HTTP standards.


At this time the only recommendation we have is to contact your IT adminstrator about this issue and verify the possibility to upgrade your proxy/firewall software or change its rules in a way it doesn't intercept traffic to *





Thanks for all of your investigations.  Yes I did not mention that I was inside a firewall as the video uploaded OK.  I have passed on your suggestions to our IT department and I will test the Publish action again.  I would like to keep using this service in our business so this would be a blocker.

@Vishal Sood I'm having this same issue, session ID is 0d46bf22-d6a2-466c-ac44-e7a18007d769. I've uploaded this video several times and for some reason it won't publish. Can you please help?
