Can someone confirm the following. While researching setting up a live event in Teams, I came across a page in support.office.com. It stated that live events produced from Teams will make a recording available on the event page up to 180 days after the event.
180 days? Aren't the recordings stored in Stream? Why are the set to expire after 180 days? I'm sure organisations would like to keep them. I can think of a scenario where the CEO AMA is held regularly. The recording is embedded later in a SP News page, along with a summary post and embedded highlighted conversations, reference documents and links.
Will this embedded video be unavailable after 180 days?

Hi @Darrell Webster , If it's a quickstart meeting it bypasses Stream, Teams pushes the stream straight through Azure Media Services, just like it used to do in Skype Broadcast. You can download the recording, and so could then upload that to Stream later. I can't confirm the 180days, I thought it was more like a couple of weeks from memory.
If you use an external encoder then it goes via Stream in the first instance, so is preserved indefinitely automatically.
It's almost as if tow teams were building the same feature in different ways.

@Steven Collierwe have been trying to find the video file associated with our live Teams event but can't find it. You say that you can download it. Please can you share how to do this. Many thanks

Hi @adam deltinger but it is still true that recordings are stored just for 180 days and then they are permanently deleted? So it is just up to us if we download the video before or we loose it, right?

@Darrell Webster I think there's work to do in bringing the two separate approaches together. Teams Quickstart broadcasts really ought to route through Stream like an external encoder.

Has this policy changed? the 180 days note is no longer showing for Teams live events.
