Stream Basics

Sharing Videos

Stream does not offer a share link such as “anyone with the link can view.” The share link only works if the video’s Permissions have been set to allow access.

Recorded Teams meetings are now stored in OneDrive or SharePoint. Meeting recordings are no longer stored in Stream.
