Given the roadmap feature ID 82039 "Microsoft Stream: Updated Web player for video & audio files in SharePoint, Teams, Yammer, and OneDr..." that is now in General Availability, I am wondering why the viewer in Teams Streams viewer has more functionality than when I open a video from our SharePoint tenant.

Stream - SharePoint UI

Is there something our SharePoint admins need to do to get the better UI when viewing videos through SharePoint/OneDrive, etc.?

 

Thanks.

The top one is a video in SharePoint or OneDrive. The bottom is a video in Stream classic.

Stream classic still has more functionality like being able to generate a caption and transcript for any video uploaded.

Today captions and transcripts only happen for videos in SPO and ODB when you have live transcript enabled in a teams meeting recording. Ability to generate them for any video uploaded in ODB and SPO is on the roadmap for around April.

We still have a bit to go to get videos in SharePoint up to par with stream classic.
