Using Stream to host videos

Occasional Visitor

Can I use Stream on Sharepoint to host videos for our customer facing website? Are there any good reasons why I should/shouldn't, or why it would be better to go with a traditional video hosting service (YouTube or Wistia)?

That depends on if you are talking about an Extranet where you are using B2B to give the customers access or if you are talking about a public facing website that wouldn't be on SharePoint. If you are talking about an Extranet where all of your customers have an account to get access to a SharePoint site - it will work just fine. If you are storing the files in SharePoint and you want to use an embed code on a public facing website on another platform - they will not work.
