Stream


Overview

Stream is a video sharing service similar to YouTube. Recordings created in Teams are stored in Stream, and you can also add other videos and organize them using channels. You can share videos in a number of ways: create a shareable link, download and post to MediaHub, or add directly into a Team or SharePoint site. 

Record a Meeting

Recordings made in Teams meetings are automatically stored in Microsoft Stream. There is no limitation on how long a video can be stored in Teams.

Create a Teams meeting recording

  1. Select the More... icon. 
  2. Choose Start recording. 

Note: Recording is not available in a private channel in Teams.

Automatic Storage

Recordings are not automatically stored in Stream.

Where recorded meetings are stored will depend on where you started the meeting. 

If you started the meeting from a Team channel, you will find the recording in the channel's files in a folder called Recordings. 

If you started the meeting from Outlook or from a Chat meeting, the recording will be in the OneDrive Recordings folder of the person who started the meeting. If others in the meeting want access to the recording, that file will need to be shared.
