Microsoft Stream is New and Improved

Microsoft is retiring the current version of Stream (called Classic Stream) within the coming year. Users won't be able to upload videos to the portal after August 1, 2023 and this portal will be deleted entirely on January 1, 2024.

The New Stream experience is now available to be your go-to video management platform at UIW. Moving forward, you won't need to upload videos to a portal like Classic Stream to receive benefits like transcripts, closed captioning, descriptions, comments, and more. Now, all videos uploaded to OneDrive or the Stream Portal will have those classic features and plenty of new ones. 

Will the Classic Stream Portal go Away?

Yes, the Classic Stream portal will be unavailable after January 1, 2024. Please take note of some key dates below.

  • August 1, 2023
    • Videos may no longer be uploaded to Classic Stream for all UIW users, although the portal will remain open to view, share, and download un-migrated content.
  • December 2023
    • Any remaining videos in Classic Stream will be migrated to the owner's OneDrive for the remaining users and groups.
