Get started with Microsoft Stream

On this page:


Microsoft Stream is an enterprise video service that enables Indiana University students, faculty, and staff to upload, view, and share videos securely. You can use Stream to share recordings of classes, meetings, presentations, training sessions, or other videos. You can also share comments on a video, and tag timecodes in comments and descriptions to refer to specific points in a video and discuss them with colleagues.

Recordings of Microsoft Teams at IU are stored in Microsoft Stream. For more, see Meeting recordings.


If you are eligible to use Office 365 at IU, you are eligible to use this application and its related suite of products.


This application is included in Microsoft Office 365, and you can launch it from the Office 365 app launcher.

For mobile clients, Stream is available via the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.

Create a video to upload to Stream

You can create a video to upload to Microsoft Stream using a mobile application or a webcam, or by recording a meeting in Microsoft Teams, Kaltura, Skype for Business, or Zoom at IU.

Troubleshooting, help, and feedback

If you have trouble with any application, sign out of Office 365 and completely close your browser or mobile app, and then restart it. You can also switch to a different browser to see if that resolves the issue.

For help with recording problems, see Troubleshoot audio and video issues on your computer or mobile device.
