Microsoft Stream Ideas

New Idea

When my users click a link to a video, it takes them to the landing page instead of loging them in directly using our SSO. they think that they need to signup for something.


can this be setup to automatically login with SSO like the rest of office 365? If i already have a browser up and logged in to office365, then it goes in, but we dont normally do that as we are only beginning to test Office365.

Chromecast support

Add Chromecast support to the Stream player!

We should be able to customize the color scheme/palette to:


  1. Inherit the Office 365 color theme
    and / or
  2. Allow for at least some minimal color palette choices. If we don't get the choice to inherit the theme, we could at least be able to customize the primary / secondary colors to be able to emulate whatever our tenant's Office 365 theme is.

One of the biggest area of concern for some of these separate apps is that they make the user feel completely disjointed, like they are no longer in the organizations Office 365 tenant. This type of experience makes it more difficult for organizations to easily move from Videos to Stream, even if the experience itself is far superior. Users get used to a similar experience and when it changes, they get nervous, confused, give up. I wish this wasn't the case......

Ability to Annotate Videos

In addition to comments on the overall video, it'd be great for collaboration if viewers could add comments at certain timecodes (or even on certain locations on the image).

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

Status: Planned

As the title suggests - this would be very useful if it is possible to implement it? Is this something which is likely to be added to Stream in future please?


Many thanks in advance!

Would like to change the custom image after uploading the first image.  After uploading a custom image there doesn't seem to be a way to change the uploaded image to a new uploaded image.  There needs to be a small cornered delete "X" icon button over the image to remove it and then you can upload a new image.

CRM Integration

As an extension to the idea of sharing Microsoft Stream videos externally, what about connecting them to CRM tools like Marketo to allow view and engagement statistics to feed directly into the CRM database? Or embed information collection forms / gates where the data entered goes direct to CRM?

There are many video files in my organization greater than 10GB size on File Shares. As I cannot migrate them to SharePoint, I am planning to connect my File Share from within SharePoint. As currently SharePoint does not support playing these video file formats my purpose of reading my file share content from SharePoint is nullified.

Import videos from other sources

Consider integration with other sites to allow easy importing of videos.  e.g. Import from YouTube, Vimeo, DailyMotion.


I would suggest that the video being imported must belong to an authenticated account for those sites.  I'm not suggesting scraping public videos.


LTI Integration

 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.



Channel Page and layout

It would be great to be able to create pages with different video layouts.

I can imagine creating a Netflix style page with our videos by metatag and allow security by those pages, similar to pages in Sharepoint. That way we can secure certain content to employees, and other content for students.

Allow users from other tenants (specified tenants) to access and assign permissions.

Playlists in a Channel

Status: New

having just one layer of organization on the channel level, is just unpractical. having the ability to create playlists just like in youtube would be a no brainer for those who intend to publish a lot. which I do, but I can't without at least one more level of organization.

Currently I can't find a way to give edit access to uploaded videos to anyone else. That would be really helpful when you have several persons administering the videos.
