Embedded Stream videos turn dark

Occasional Visitor

Hi folks,


I'm a teacher and, of course, due to the pandemic, we are all shifting to online learning. 

I really enjoy posting videos on Stream because of how fast the captioning is (compared to YouTube); we are a Microsoft school so this works beautifully.


I embed my Stream videos onto our learning management system (Blackboard) and I noticed last night that something has changed. All my embedded Stream videos have turned drastically dark -- to a point that it's difficult to see.


Pls take a look at the two attachments. The first is an example of an embedded Stream video that turns up really dark; when I open that same video on the actual Stream site, the lighting is totally different. 


Is there any way to get rid of that dark shadow via the embed code? Maybe there is a new setting that Microsoft put into place for the embedded video thumbnails? I'm not sure, but I really hope this can be fixed.
