Microsoft Stream Ideas

New Idea

Public videos

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.

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

Add Chromecast support to the Stream player!

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.

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.

Ability to stream Live content for my company all-hands meeting or other live events

Channel based permissions

Status: Planned
by on ‎07-16-2016 03:19 PM

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

Status: Planned

Since Office 365 groups are a new way to manage permissions, it would be great to have the ability to share a Stream video with an O365 group, along with an AD group.

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...

Video upload limit should be removed

Status: New
by jluopajarvi on ‎06-02-2017 12:05 AM

I'm responsible for uploading all videos in my organization, but I came up with a problem that I can't upload more than 100 videos. If I ask my colleguea to upload videos, then I have an administration problem as the video settings can only be changed by the video owner.


Suggestion is to remove the limit how many videos can be uploaded and additionally possibility to add multiple owners for a video.

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.

SSO login instead of landing page

Status: New
by TheGripper on ‎05-25-2017 10:09 AM

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.

Ability to add a Creative Commons License to the video?

Edit access for several users

Status: New
by jluopajarvi on ‎05-21-2017 01:20 AM

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.

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