Microsoft Stream Terms and Conditions

Video Level Permissions

Make sure you apply the appropriate viewing permissions when uploading a video. Permissions at the video level allow you to control who can see your video, who can own and edit it and assign access from within groups and channels. When you upload a video into Stream, you have the option to select, Allow everyone in your company to view this video. Any users with an ECU Microsoft 365 account can see the video and add it to their groups and/or channels. The Shared with field is where you select who can view/own your video and in which groups/channels. Use the drop-down to search and select viewers.

  • My groups – search for and grant access to groups for which you have access to share video file(s).
  • Channels – search for and grant access to channels for which you have access to share your video file(s).
  • People – search for and grant access permissions to individual people, AD Security Groups, and/or Office 365 Groups.
