We use Stream (on SharePoint) and are very pleased to have the block download feature for Teams-recordings available, but when will it be available for all video (mainly MP4) files? At our University a lot of teachers create their own video's and want to share them with their students without the option to download the file.

 

Microsoft is releasing many video features focusing on Teams-recordings, but regular video files are just as important to us. I tried to recreate a folder with the same 'view only' rights as in channel meetings with the block download feature, but it only works for Teams-recordings and not for other video files.

Hi, "support for blocking video downloads is in progress. We'll update this article when Block download is available for videos" https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/block-downloads-for-view-only-files-in-sharepoint-and-one...

If applicable you can use sensitivity labels to restrict permissions as well.
