Microsoft Stream

What is Microsoft Stream?

Microsoft Stream is a video sharing service similiar to YouTube. However, unlike YouTube, Stream requires KU credentials to create and access content. Recordings created in Teams are stored in Stream, but you can also choose to add other videos and organize them using channels. You can share videos in Stream in a number of ways such as creating a shareable link, downloading and posting to MediaHub or adding them directly into a Team or SharePoint site.
