It would be helpful to have a Stream Desktop App for Win 10, Mac, and Android so that channel followers could watch videos offline securely without having to request a copy of the MP4 file.   This is possible in the Mobile Apps, please bring this to laptops and tablets as well so users can benefit from the larger form factor, while offline.

It would be wonderful if Microsoft created a Stream UWP app. This way you could give users a better native experience with notifications when videos are viewed, and give users the ability to edit and also upload their videos from one place.

Please create a Windows 10 app for Microsoft Stream. You could just port the work done on the iOS app using the Windows Bridge for iOS

It would be great if a Microsoft Stream Windows 10 app would be created. It could even be ported from the iOS app using the WinObj-C bridge to UWP: https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/bridges/ios

Vimeo already offers this functionality and I use it a lot - would be great to have it in Stream.

Microsoft

I agree on this functionality should be there.

I would love to have this ability on my Surface Pro 6 so I could watch streams while on flights without Internet.

I have similar request from a customer and in specific for mobile app. it will be good to have the download option.

We have a similar situation, but for teams who are training in a hotel where wifi might be inconsistent or poor or too expensive. Instead of providing an MP4, the desktop app will allow the facilitator to always access the latest version of the video.

We want this at GE. We would love this to happen. Who can we push on the team to get this to happen?

Any update on a feature like this? Offline viewing on a larger screen.

Heavy travelers in our organization would love to see this feature offered on a PC.  Old eyes = bigger screens...you get the idea.

I also agree to the fact that there should be a Stream App for windows. It would be great then.

This has a been a major issue on stream since the start. We need a way to review a meeting video while NOT online. I do not want to give 100 delegates all owner/editor rights just to allow them to have a local offline copy as someone will delete/change it.

We must have some way for attendees to have their own local copy within a Windows desktop application where they can review a presentation while they are not internet connected.

 

Make it DRM protected, similar to things like BBC player, but ensure that there is no requirement for interet access at any point once the presentation has been downloaded. 

==> Start PC without internet  access, open up the Stream player, and then view my downloaded content all while offline.

We won't be doing this for Stream (Classic), but will support offline desktop playback in New Stream. In fact, this is already available for Teams Meeting Recordings that get auto-uploaded to OneDrive and SharePoint as the first phase of New Stream: if enabled by your admin, you can sync the video files to your desktop using the OneDrive sync client.

I have to ask the question, @Chris Knowlton : will there be a way to migrate existing classic streams to new streams if we are the owner of the content?

 

Thanks!

This is good news, as long it provides the ability for people who are not part of my tenant to download meetings or presentations where I have shared this with them.

@Chris Knowlton: With the new Stream will there be a Windows 10 app? This should be a top priority, especially with Satya saying that Microsoft is doubling down on Windows with a renewed focus toward it.

@Robert Bernstein - yes, we'll be providing migration tooling to move from Stream (Classic) to New Stream, allowing both video owners and Stream admins to move content.

 

@AndyGadget - New Stream uses the existing file sharing capabilities of OneDrive and SharePoint, so you'll be able to share a file externally as shown at https://aka.ms/odspsharing.

 

@Steskalj - I don't have any specific news to share at this time about a Stream app for Windows 10. 

Thank you, @Chris Knowlton!  I'm looking forward to trying this out.
