Month: February 2021

Coming Soon – Stream

Update: Rollout is now complete and uploads will be enabled from 24th February, with O365 Video being retired from 25th February. Please see Uploads in Stream and O365 Video Retiral for more information.

Stream is part of O365 which allows storage and creation of video content.  During February Stream will be rolling out to users.  The rollout is phased, and not all users will immediately see Stream.

Whilst the rollout is happening Stream will be read only.  You will not be able to upload content into Stream.  This will allow you to become familiar with the product and for all users to be licensed.

Once the rollout is complete video uploads will be enabled for staff only.  We will announce the date for this towards the end of February.

Important: Staff should ensure they’ve read the guidance on Stream (Stream – Glow Connect).

Microsoft will be retiring O365 Video as of 1st March.  All content in O365 Video will be migrated to Stream, and existing links will redirect to Stream until March 2022.

When the migration completes at the end of February there will be a final sync between O365 Video and Stream and there may be some discrepancies whilst this process finalises.  O365 Video content will not be visible in Stream until the migration is finalised.

You may wish to take this opportunity to review what content you have in O365 Video and delete any old content and to review the permissions set.
