Microsoft Stream Ideas

New Idea

Public videos

Status: Planned
by on ‎07-16-2016 02:52 PM

Have a way to use Microsoft Stream to upload videos, mark them as public and be able to share them on external sites with a simple embed page.

Status: Planned

It's been added to our backlog as approved. Can't share any timing yet but we will keep in touch.

Video Analytics

More detailed video analytics required before I even think about switching. 


My current video hosting software allows me to access how many users are watching my videos, where they are watching from, what device they are using and most importantly, what percentage of the video that they are watching....

It'd be great if you could record a meeting and have it publish directly to Stream.

It would be great if we can not only stream / embed or share a movie but also download a movie for offline use.

Ability to set permissions on channels for who has permissions to see the channel

Upload via OneDrive

It would be great to have a folder in OneDrive be designated to a channel and drop videos in the folder and pushed to Stream...

Arrange Videos in a Playlist

Status: New
by sysnickm on ‎03-20-2017 11:59 AM

I'm uploading a set of training videos and I'd like them to be presented in order. I'm putting them in a specific channel but the sort options on the channel don't seem to have a way to do that.


Either a Playlist or the ability to sort by name in a channel would be helpful

Video Comments

Would like a way to comment on videos

Status: Completed

This is live in production now. 

Ability set a custom channel cover

Status: Completed
by MudithaC on ‎07-19-2016 06:29 AM

It would be great if the ability to set a custom cover for a channel was there. Picking up an image from a video of the channel is not the ideal at all times. The thumbnail of videos can be unique to the video while a channel cover should collectively represent the content of the channel.

Status: Completed

This just rolled out to all users. We will have a blog on this soon with more details. On any channel, click on "..." and select "upload custom thumbnail". You can also do this from Edit channel experience.

Id like to see the ability to have an admin in the organization approve a video that has been uploaded by an end user before it can be published and viewable by the rest of the organization.

An intellegent way to search based on the audio inside the video

iPhone App

Status: New

A Microsoft Stream app for my iOS device

Notification when videos are ready

Status: Completed
by on ‎07-16-2016 03:13 PM

A simple notification for when my video are finished processing and are ready to be viewed

Status: Completed

This feature is complete and now in production. When a video is finished processing you will receive an email

LTI Integration

Status: New
by jenSadler on ‎03-13-2017 12:34 PM

 I would like to suggest an LTI integration so that the many campuses and schools with Microsoft 365 agreements can use MS Stream easily within their learning management systems. I found the original idea in this thread: However, I don't think that person actually created a thread here as requested. 


From Wikipedia:

"LTI is a primary means by which course content and learning technology functionality is delivered from content providers to students via their institutional LMS interface or portal. It delivers courseware as a service from most large educational content providers, including Pearson and McGraw Hill and is an educational technology distribution and implementation tool in widespread use.Popular LMS software such as ManageBac, D2L, Canvas, Blackboard, and Moodle employ LTI integration to supply student access to third-party software."


I would add Sakai to that list. Adding LTI support opens up huge avenues for Microsoft Stream to be used in an educational context.


Here is some more information on LTI:


Thanks for considering this request.



Folders in Channels

Status: New
by BenClarke on ‎09-29-2016 12:56 AM

I would like to be able to create folders within Channels so that I can organise videos.  Our videos can be broken down in to chapters for easy access to specific parts of the video so organising in folders would be great.  For example, we are a school and have different subjects.  So if we could have channels such as Geography, History, English etc, then create a folder called "Of Mice and Men" and then have videos in there would make it simple to organise for us.  At the moment with only a channel, we can't use Stream at all.



Ability to upload 360 degree videos

Status: New
by on ‎07-19-2016 08:36 AM

As part of the training program in our org we are using 360 degree videos and currently no Microsoft software has the ability to play 360 degree videos.

It would be great if Stream would include that ability.

Integration with Flow & Azure Logic App

Status: New

Create Azure Logic App / Microsoft Flow connectors for Stream on change events, list channel & videos.


Integration example:

An Azure Logic App / Microsoft Flow that allows me to post a Yammer / SPO notification based on when a new video is added to a specific channel.


Rich Text for the Video Description field

Status: New
by MrNigel on ‎07-18-2016 11:58 AM

At the very least I want to be able to embed a URL in the video description, but all the usual formatting options would be cool - like available in this comment box!

Delve Connection to Stream

Status: New
by CathyM on ‎07-25-2016 09:31 AM

I would like to be able to see all stream videos in Delve. It would be very convenient for a new employee to find all documents, videos and Office Mixes that all have the same hashtag in the description.


Another good example would be seeing a form you need to fill out and the video explaining how to fill out the form showing up when you search for the form.
