Hello 

 

We are heavy O365 video users and due to two significant outages last year we are now moving to a new approach using SharePoint Document Libraries. We would ideally have liked to have used Stream but the APIs are still not available which rules this option out.

 

We are experiencing issues with playback and some videos will not playback via the browser or through the Office App using SharePoint Site option. . For the most part our videos are in MP4, MPEG and AVI format. Are there limitations around what formats can playback within a browser and within the IOS Office app. 

 

Within the app we cannot see any of  the videos within our video libraries.  

 

I have seen this article - https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/office/video-formats-you-can-play-on-the-onedrive-website-07c008... 

 

Does this also apply to SharePoint Document Libraries.
