Stream Video Migration

Microsoft has introduced a new version of Stream for video hosting on SharePoint.  This change requires Kalamazoo College to migrate Stream (Classic) content to SharePoint by early April 2024.

What you need to know:

  • After migration, Stream (on SharePoint) will include the videos that you’ve already uploaded to Stream (Classic) so you can continue to use them.
    • Your videos from Stream (Classic) will appear in your OneDrive in a folder titled “Stream Migrated Videos.”
    • Videos will also be viewable via the Stream start page for sharing, creating playlists, comments, etc.
    • Videos that are part of Microsoft 365 Groups will be moved to that group’s SharePoint site.
  • Videos you have linked or embedded in Teams, Moodle, and elsewhere will automatically redirect and continue to work for one year. However, we recommend updating your links before that.
  • Stream (on SharePoint) includes the important features from Stream (Classic) as well as new capabilities. If you are interested in learning more about the differences, review this short guide.

What you need to do:

  • If you would like to start migrating your videos now, please contact the Help Desk and I.S. will assist you.
  • Any videos not migrated by the beginning of April will be migrated for you.
  • Update your links to videos and embeds within one year after migration.
