Microsoft Stream is our recommended platform to upload and share your video meeting or live event recordings from Microsoft Teams.
Important: Teams meeting recordings will no longer be saved to Stream from End July 2021
From the end of July 2021, your Teams meeting recordings will no longer be automatically saved to Microsoft Stream. Teams meeting recordings for all users will be automatically stored in OneDrive (for private non-channel meetings) or SharePoint (for channel meetings).
If you have videos saved in Microsoft Stream, these will stay on Microsoft Stream. Microsoft have not yet announced when they will retire the Microsoft Stream platform. However, they have stated that if and when they do retire the platform all existing videos will be migrated to OneDrive or SharePoint.
You can still upload your videos to Microsoft Stream manually. This may be useful to allow editing of your videos.
For further information on what this change involves, please see our "Teams Meeting recordings on OneDrive and Sharepoint" page.
The recommended use of Microsoft Stream is for uploading your recordings of meetings or events using Microsoft Teams, or for non-curriculum based content.
Please do not use Microsoft Stream for content aligned with teaching or curriculum, use the University's establised Media Service for this purpose:
Do not share your recordings on social media platforms.
