Stream Videos in PowerApps - Microsoft Stream Depreciated - SharePoint doesn't work

I need to create a PowerApp which streams videos, among other things, and was going to use Microsoft Stream for this purpose. I just found out from our IS team that Microsoft Stream is being depreciated and that SharePoint will become the *New* Microsoft Stream.

 

If that is the case then how do I stream videos stored in SharePoint in PowerApps? I have tried using the SharePoint URL in the Microsoft Stream control but it does not work. 

 

Please post the solution - Thank you very much.

Have you considered using Youtube?

Then linking it to Power Apps like:

Properties of Controls in Power Apps - Video Tutor... - Power Platform Community (microsoft.com)

I will not use You Tube. This is for work.

Hi @CP153319 ,

 

Could you try to use the video control instead of microsoft stream control?

Please show the solution using SharePoint as the source for the video.

Hi @CP153319 ,

 

The method is the same. You can save your video to sp library and get its path.

Then you can use the path in the video control.

I tested this method and I am able to view the video, in the Powerapp, using my laptop computer. The view WILL NOT run when I try to view it using an iPad. This solution was promising, but does not work.

 

The other problem with this solution is that the person logged into Powerapps would probably have to log into SharePoint, if they weren't already, for the video to play. We want a seamless experience for the end user where the video plays in Powerapps, on any platform, and they don't have to log in to anything besides PowerApps.
