What is Stream?

Stream is a video service in Office 365 which makes it easy to create, securely share, and interact, whether in a team or across the university.

It is very important to note that all staff and students with a university assigned Microsoft 365 account has access to Stream, and will be able to view content unless you ensure it is suitably restricted.

When a meeting is recorded in Teams, it goes into Stream and is assigned to the person who clicked to record.  The good news is that the permissions carry over from the Team it was hosted in.

Why use Stream?

Stream enables you to connect, collaborate, learn and share information.

You can use Stream to video-record content in a chat or a meeting in Teams, for example. When a meeting is recorded in Teams, it is actually handled by Stream and is assigned to the person who clicked the record button in the meeting.

The video will automatically be stored in Stream and you'll be able to control who has access to it. Stream videos can be shared with individuals or groups of staff and students.

Stream is available on mobile web browsers with full functionality across iOS and Android.
