Working on it

Embedded Stream videos generate an error in Safari:
"It looks like there’s a problem
A setting in your browser is blocking cookies. Please disable this setting or open in a new window."
The only workaround is to go to Preferences > Privacy  and uncheck the Prevent cross-site tracking  setting.
More details here:

Requesting this to be fixed in order to allow Stream videos to play in Safari without needing to turn off "Prevent cross-site tracking".

Thank you Caius! We are aware of this issue and working on a solution.

Any progress on this? Same for Chrome. Really hampers UX.

This is a huge problem for our customer. Also when using the feature from an iPhone!
Is there a solution underway or any workarounds? Is it e.g. possible to disable the creation of cookies from the Stream site?

Same here.  

We want our Employee Experience to be able to access information, anytime, anywhere on any device as long as they have an Internet connection.  We have this experience when looking at Outlook, OneDrive, Notes, so why do we get problem/error when accessing Streams videos on our SharePoint intranet.

Same. Please fix this!

When can we expect an answer and a solution on this?

Has any one thought already about alternatives in case Microsoft is not gonna deliver?

Occasional Contributor

Following up on any updates for a permanent solution or another work-around that does not involve disabling "Prevent Cross-Site Tracking"? Thank you.

I just uploaded all the videos to a SharePoint site and then embedded them in that, when its from the same domain, it doesn't have the same cross site linking issue.
